City Charter Facts

The people of Abilene are dedicated to the principle of local self-government, under law, as interpreted by the light of reason, and have established a municipal government capable of efficiently translating the wishes of the voters into effective administration as promptly and economically as possible. The first Abilene Charter went into effect in 1911.

Abilene is a home rule city. It has all powers granted to home rule cities by the constitution and laws of Texas. The municipal government provided by the City Charter is known as "Council-Manager Government." All powers of the City are vested in an elected City Council, which enacts legislation, adopts budgets, and determines policies.

The City Council consists of six Council members and a Mayor, all of whom are elected at large. Each Council member serves for a term of three years. Terms for the City Council are on a three year staggered basis such that two Council members are elected each year. The Mayor and each Council member receive a salary of one dollar per year for each year he or she serves as Mayor or Council member.

The Mayor appoints the City Manager, the City Secretary, the City Attorney, and the Judge of Municipal Court with the approval of the Council.

The City Manager is the chief administrative officer of the City who executes the laws and administers the government of the City. The City's fiscal year begins on October 1 each year, and ends on the following September 30.


The City of Abilene is organized into eleven departments: Administrative Services, Aviation, Community Services, Economic Development, Finance, Fire, General Government, Planning and Development Services, Police, Public Works, and Water. Each department has one or more subordinate divisions.

High-tech classrooms, computer labs in the residence halls, full wireless Internet across campus, and ACU’s innovative mobile-learning initiative guarantee our students are prepared for the fast-paced technological world of today.

ACU places great value on the dynamic relationship that should exist between professors and their students. U.S. News & World Report honors ACU for "an unusual commitment to undergraduate teaching" and ranks it as the No. 1 “Up and Coming” university in the West Region.

Many institutions rely extensively on graduate assistants. Not ACU. All our courses are taught by qualified faculty members. And when professors work on research projects, you can usually find undergraduates by their side, a rarity elsewhere.

How do we know this philosophy works? Because each year, some of the nation's top businesses come to our campus to interview because they know ACU students have the education and preparation needed to succeed.

Outstanding faculty. Great facilities. Good jobs and graduate school. They're all the result of ACU's uncommon commitment to teaching and learning. ACU prepares its graduates for Christian service and leadership throughout the world.

Student Life

As a residential campus, ACU is alive with activities from concerts and comedians to weeknight devotionals and poetry readings. Many students participate in intramural sports, men's and women's social clubs, Spring Break mission campaigns, and the annual Sing Song performance event.  Almost 100 campus organizations give students many venues for involvement and leadership.

The university is located in Abilene, Texas, an All-America City of 117,000 people with a variety of social, religious, athletic and cultural activities. Abilene is a safe, fun place to live – all the amenities without the hassles of a mega-city.

The $21 million Royce and Pam Money Student Recreation and Wellness Center is a focal point on campus. Designed to encourage wellness of the whole individual - body, mind and spirit - it includes the ACU Medical and Counseling Center and is the home of a dynamic intramural program with championship and recreational leagues for students of all interests and abilities


As a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA Division II) and the Lone Star Conference, ACU competes in football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s track and field, women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s tennis, women's soccer and women’s softball.

McMurry University Abilene, Texas


Whether you realize it or not, “The next two decades may well…elevate the role of higher education in preparing the ‘best and brightest’ and in laying out the blueprint for a better future?”1 With the same speed that the personal computer replaced the typewriter, broadband surpassed dialup, and smart phones replaced traditional cell phones, the internet and associated technologies have become an integral part of lives.

We in the Information Services Department realize that there are only four responses to this fast paced rate of change: “ignore it, resist it, ride it or lead it!”2 We continue to be excited that over 6 years ago, McMurry University's Board of Trustees and President have decided to lead!

For the past six years, the Tablet program has been an important part of the McMurry experience. This initiative is a part of our Mobile Online Visionary Education (MOVE) Program. The original intent of the program was to “level the playing field” so that every student has the “tech tools” to maximize their educational experience. This experience will set the foundation for life long learning.

We recognize that our mandate isn’t just to support the academic mission of the university; but to provide solution driven service rather than task oriented support. In short, we are here to help members of the McMurry family (faculty, staff and students) practice good stewardship over the technology resources that have been entrusted to us.

Texas Tech at Abilene



Some people say the American west begins in Fort Worth, but Abilene is where it's in full gallop. The pioneering spirit of the Texas Frontier that lives and breathes in Abilene is also part of the TTUHSC School of Pharmacy, which opened its Abilene regional campus in 2007 with 40 first-year pharmacy students.

Like the main SOP campus in Amarillo, Abilene will offer all four years of TTUHSC's Doctor of Pharmacy program. The Abilene campus is now home to 160 Pharm.D. students and the founding class graduated on May 21 of 2011.

Students attending Abilene's state-of-the-art facility enjoy multimedia classrooms, a drug information center, a pharmacy practice laboratory, a patient counseling training center and physical assessment room, modern research laboratories and much more.

In short, the future pharmacists who call the Abilene campus home receive a comprehensive and practical education that encompasses a broad range of contemporary health issues and prepares them for careers in all areas of today's pharmacy profession.


The collaboration between Abilene City officials, community leaders and the TTUHSC School of Pharmacy has created an innovative economic and academic development model for the future of pharmacy education.

Affiliations with Hendrick Medical Center, the Abilene Regional Medical Center and the more than 50 community pharmacies located in the Abilene area provides students with numerous sites for rural practice training. The addition of TTUHSC-SOP to the Abilene landscape also adds to the impact TTUHSC-SOP is making in addressing the shortage of pharmacists that exists in many areas of Texas.

The SOP's Department of Pharmacy Practice in Abilene consists of practitioners who are directly involved with patient care in the areas of adult medicine, community care, geriatrics and primary care. The continuing efforts of the dedicated faculty, staff and students at the SOP's Abilene campus will only enhance TTUHSC's national reputation in addressing the complex and multifaceted health issues associated with clinical pharmacy and research.
