The Grad TX Consortium is a select group of dedicated innovators who are working alongside the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to investigate and implement strategies that will re-engage stopouts (individuals who have some college but no degree) and help them get back on the path to degree completion.
Over 3.2 million Texans ages 25 and over have earned some college credit, but never a degree. A college degree can be an important gateway to employment, a career, and a better standard of living. And in Texas, which is growing by a rate of 1,200 people per day, it is critical to narrow educational inequality gaps. The Grad TX Consortium was created to serve stopouts and provide them with a second chance at earning one of the most powerful tools for social mobility – a postsecondary credential.
Grad TX Consortium members include:
- Houston Community College
- San Jacinto College
- University of Houston-Victoria
- University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley
- West Texas A&M University
