“I accepted that I needed to go to a university straight out of high school—at the time, I didn’t really realize that other postsecondary options were available.”

Austin Community College District (ACC) Chancellor Dr. Russell Lowery-Hart was interviewed by Roadtrip Nation—a nonprofit education media company—during the 2024 SXSW EDU Conference in March. 

Dr. Lowery-Hart sat down with Roadtrip Nation students to talk about their “roads” in life, including their career journeys and insights they have learned along the way. The video is meant to help young people learn from others who have been there and provide insights to future generations.
