Vaughn served as construction manager-at-risk for two new projects at the Austin Community College District (ACC) Highland Campus. The 10,000 SF Make It Center provides information to allow students to make educated decisions on career paths, taking
into consideration the cost of living of their desired future residence, any degree requirements, along with the associated education costs. The 12,300 SF Welcome Center serves as a place for students and community members to explore the college’s
programs and areas of study, ask questions and get answers directly from ACC staff, and learn about the college’s free support services and benefits.
“There are so many pathways and opportunities out there that people are not aware of or have not
heard of,” said ACC Chancellor Dr. Richard Rhodes. “We are working to help people find their purpose and make a career out of their passion.”
Both Centers serve ACC’s goal of being a destination campus in the Austin area. The College is a national model for innovative learning, sustainability, and training facilities. ACC Highland stands at the center of Austin as a hub for the future
of higher education and career training in Central Texas.
