When we help more students graduate with credentials of value, we ultimately increase Texans’ opportunities to succeed, while also bolstering Texas’ ability to flourish. Students are at the center of our state’s strategic plan for higher education, Building a Talent Strong Texas, which strives to ensure 60% of Texans ages 25 to 64 receive a credential of value by 2030.
We are invested in the postsecondary and economic success of Texans, no matter their stage of life or pathway. Our work connects students – including working adults – to credentials that offer purpose in the economy, value in the labor market, and opportunities for good jobs and meaningful careers.
Our resources help students through each stage of their postsecondary journey: understanding career opportunities, planning their pathway, paying for their education, and pursuing work-based learning opportunities.
Across all of our work in supporting students, we are committed to equity. Texas is one of the youngest and most diverse states. If we’re not advancing our goals for student success equitably, we cannot meet those goals.
