Austin Community College (ACC) is committed to fostering collaboration, communication, and access to information among its faculty, staff, and students. Shared Governance meetings are open to all ACC employees for observation.
The commitment to Shared Governance at ACC entails a commitment to the effective use of participatory governing councils and committees to draw upon the expertise of the members of the ACC community, and to represent the stakeholders within the ACC community, in the process of governing the college and guiding it towards fulfillment of its mission.
Each year APTE elects representatives to serve on various councils and committees. Contact your APTE representative with questions about projects, initiatives, or shared governance decisions.
