A partnership between Alvin Community College and the University of Houston-Clear Lake will offer classes for freshmen and sophomores including algebra, English composition, psychology and history at UH-CL’s Pearland campus.
ACC entered the partnership as it assesses how its strategic plan can be accomplished despite rejection of a proposed $48.5 million bond by voters in November. The cooperative venture will provide classrooms for approximately 70 freshman and sophomore students.
“The loss of that bond turned out to be a gain for many ACC students,” said Kathy Dupree, executive director of campus operations at UH-Clear Lake Pearland Campus.
She said the idea for the partnership was sparked by discussions between ACC President Christal Albrecht and now-retired UH-CL President William A. Staples.
