Job Description

The ACC Board of Trustees invites applications and nominations for the position of Chancellor to build upon the college’s momentum with forward-thinking, collaborative leadership that promotes and fosters diversity, equity, and inclusion at all levels at the college. This position will succeed the extraordinary leadership of Dr. Richard M. Rhodes who, after 12 years at the college, retires on August 31, 2023. Read Dr. Rhodes' Retirement Announcement.

Opened in 1973, Austin Community College District (ACC) is recognized as a national leader in higher education for closing equity gaps, increasing completion rates, and designing advanced learning environments that set new standards.

ACC is listed among the largest colleges in the nation. It is home to a diverse community of talented educators and staff committed to each student’s success. We value community collaboration, strive for excellence, and truly believe ACC is for everyone. Recently voted by the community as the Best College/University in Central Texas, ACC serves nearly 70,000 students each year. Our students come to ACC with a wide range of academic and career goals. They live here, learn here, and work here.

The college operates 11 campuses across the region and has earned the trust of the community we serve. Following the successful completion of the 2014 General Obligation (G.O.) Bond Program, which included new state-of-the-art classrooms and training facilities, ACC passed a $770 million G.O. bond with 70 percent of the vote in 2022. Austin’s fast-paced growth has created an urgent need to develop a highly-skilled pool of talent to fill high-demand, well-paying jobs. The 2022 bond will fund new campuses located in high-growth areas strategically aimed at expanding programs to close workforce gaps.
