FY22 Budget Positioning For Smart Growth

The Board of Trustees recently approved the Alamo Colleges District's 2021-2022 operating budget, totaling $409.7 million.

The overall goal of our budget is to continue the momentum we created in FY20 in positioning the Alamo Colleges for "smart growth," which makes the most effective use of every dollar of revenue to support the economic and social mobility of the members of our community and the success of our students. This is an especially significant accomplishment in light of the economy and the strain we have seen other organizations in San Antonio and the higher education community face due to the pandemic.

We are pleased to say that we are not faced with the economic uncertainties confronting other entities; instead, we are investing in the "smart growth" initiatives that were introduced in FY20, and expanding them to ensure the success of continued “smart growth” and “smart talent” in FY22.

To achieve this goal, the board is heavily investing in three main areas:

  • Smart Student Investment
    ($6.2 million)

  • Smart Talent Investment
    ($11.9 million)

  • Return Ready Investment
    ($5.3 million)


Four Pillars of Investment

The approved investments support our four pillars of investment: strategic enrollment; student success; regional workforce development; and Smart Talent.
