2020 Leah Meyer Austin Award – Alamo Colleges District

Stories & Case Studies
February 18, 2020

Alamo Colleges District, one of two 2020 Leah Meyer Austin Award winners, shows how a system of colleges can work together to build a structure and culture organized around student success. The five individually accredited community colleges — Northeast Lakeview College, Northwest Vista College, Palo Alto College, San Antonio College, and St. Philip’s College — serve the 1.5 million people living in San Antonio, Bexar County and seven surrounding counties.

Mirroring the broader community, the student body of 60,692 students (Fall 2019) are 63 percent Hispanic, 23 percent White, 8 percent African American and 6 percent Asian or other. Approximately 60 percent of students are female; 81 percent of students attend part-time; 70 percent receive financial aid; 53 percent are economically disadvantaged; and 12 percent of students are in the top economic quintile.
