Initiatives

Below are a few of our current projects.

Higher Education Almanac
The Almanac offers a side-by-side view of benchmarks for Texas’s public higher education institutions. These data support and guide the decisions needed to help Texas reach its higher education goals.

Texas Affordable Baccalaureate Expansion Program
This program is designed to lower  barriers that prevent countless Texans from pursuing higher education. Texas Affordable Baccalaureate degrees are designed to help students accelerate time to completion and save thousands of dollars.

60x30TX Communication Project
Since all Texans have a stake in the success of 60x30TX, this project is designed to build awareness about the plan and encourage local creativity in pursuit of reaching the plan’s goals.

Emergency Aid Network
It is estimated that over 5 million students drop out of college annually due to financial stressors. Emergency Aid Network members meet quarterly to identify strategies and best practices that can help move the state forward in meeting students’ financial needs.

Dual Credit Research
Data show dual credit participation is on the rise in Texas.  But how is it benefiting Texas students? This key question is currently being explored in a rigorous research study.

Advise Texas
Advise Texas advisors are placed in high-risk Texas high schools with the singular mission of building a college-going culture and helping students find the best fit for their academic and career aspirations.

Generation Texas Campaign
Generation TX is a statewide, grassroots movement that’s focused on creating what’s next for Texas: a culture of college and career readiness that leads to the most successful generation of students ever.
