ACC Regents Approve Contract for Strategic Plan

Alvin Community College approved the contract for Collaborative Brain Trust Inc. (CBT) to assist with the development of the five-year strategic plan for 2022-27 during their meeting on November 19.

The previous strategic plan will be completed next year.

The Strategic Plan is an important document that provides guidance to achieve ACC’s mission to provide our students with a quality education and a path to a meaningful career. CBT consulted on the current strategic plan. Development of the plan will include extensive meetings with ACC administration, faculty, staff, business and industry partners, area school districts, colleges and universities as well as the community to address the future needs of students at ACC.

In other action the board received its annual data report which contains data about demographics, student success and more.

“We are focused on using our data to benefit our students,” said Dr. Pam Shefmyn, executive director of ACC Institutional Effectiveness and Research.

One piece of data in the report is an increase in the number of degrees and certificates awarded to ACC students.

“We have more total earned awards this year than we have in the previous year,” Shefmyn said. “We are continuing to provide students with the credentials that they come to ACC for.”

Students are also achieving a higher number of credit hours from their attempts to take a particular course.

The full report is now available on the college website.
