ACC Employee Associations

The Association of Professional-Technical Employees (APTE) is an employee association based on Austin Community College’s personnel classification system. You become part of the Association when you are hired as a professional/technical employee. The employee associations, Full-Time Faculty Senate, Adjunct Faculty Association, Classified Employee Association and APTE, participate in the College’s Shared Governance process – a collaborative process by which councils and committees review the College’s processes and procedures and make recommendations for policy that are based on the mission, goals, and values of the College.
