Richard Rhodes Dr. Richard Rhodes is the President and CEO of the Austin Community College (ACC) District. He joined ACC in September 2011 after serving as President of El Paso Community College for 10 years. Dr. Rhodes works to improve pathways into higher education, strengthen awareness of the community college mission, and give students the tools to accomplish their educational, professional, and personal goals. Since arriving at ACC, he has enhanced the college's partnerships, working closely with regional business and industry, other institutions of higher education, and school districts within ACC's service area. Dr. Rhodes is closely involved with the Early College High School program, which gives students at two Austin high schools an opportunity to earn up to an associate degree by high school graduation. He continually works to increase degree and certificate completion rates for all students.

A native of New Mexico, Dr. Rhodes received his Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and Master of Arts in Educational Management and Development from New Mexico State University. He earned his doctorate through the Community College Leadership Program (CCLP) at the University of Texas at Austin. CCLP honored Dr. Rhodes with its Distinguished Graduate Award in 2001.
