Austin Community College District's P-16 Initiative Graduates America

Austin Community College (ACC) District's P-16 Initiative supports partnerships with 30 school districts--reaching traditionally underserved students and bridging the gap between high school and college--so more Texas students can reach their educational goals. The P-16 Initiative is a constellation of efforts designed to provide broad-based student outreach in this diverse community. The P-16 Initiative can be divided into four categories: (a) College in the High Schools, (b) Bridge to College, (c) Community Outreach, and (d) College Success. The effect of the P-16 Initiative has been increased enrollment at ACC, particularly in the minority enrollments so important to the future of Texas. Another effect is the recognition by the community that ACC is a committed, service-oriented partner with student success as its primary goal.
