Achieving the state’s higher education strategic plan is critical to ensure continued growth for Texas and greater opportunities for Texans in the global economy. When 60x30TX launched in 2015, it was with the knowledge that success would depend on leveraging the creativity and commitment of higher education, civic, and business leaders across the state.
Outreach efforts are designed to ensure Texas’ higher education leaders are well informed about and engaged in reaching the goals of 60x30TX. The 60x30TX.com website launched in 2017 and was designed to ensure Texans have easy access to relevant postsecondary data. The website’s user-friendly platform makes it ideal for use in 60x30TX training sessions and presentations. Also designed to be user-friendly, the Texas Higher Education Almanac provides annual higher education facts and performance data. The Almanac allows Texans to compare Texas public higher education institutions in a format that promotes a high degree of transparency.
It is essential to increase momentum and maintain a sense of urgency as education, business, and civic leaders unite to achieve the bold goals of 60x30TX.
