At Alvin Community College (ACC), we recognize that work life is an important but single component of a bigger picture of life responsibilities, goals, and obligations for each of our employees. We want to encourage our employees to create a positive work life balance specific to their unique needs. This is critical for not only the wellbeing and productivity of our employees, but also the success of the College.
ACC encourages and promotes self-care through a healthy work environment. Full-time, benefits eligible employees can use 30 minutes of their regular work hours up to three times a week to exercise from September 1-May 15 each academic year. In addition to our walking trail, we also have a Fitness Center available for employees, students and community members.
Additional Wellness Resources
ACC is a tobacco free campus as of August 2016. The College’s Board policy prohibits the possession or use of tobacco products or e-cigarettes (including vapor products) on college property. Additionally, Texas law authorizes ERS (as well as other healthcare insurance providers) to charge a premium for those employees and/or dependents who use tobacco products or e-cigarettes. For information on tobacco free policies and procedures as well as resources to quit, please see below.
