The Texas Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) of the THECB is a project first funded by the Houston Endowment in 2007. It is an initiative of Commissioner Paredes motivated by the need for policymakers to have expanded access to objective research on topical higher education policy issues. HEPI conducts symposia, reviews existing literature, and commissions research that informs state, system, and institutional policy. Affiliated researchers have produced reports, presentations, and briefs based upon original research and survey existing research to inform higher education policy related to Texas’ higher education goals.
