Too few young people are going to college, and of those who do, too few graduate. This has dramatic social and economic consequences for the state of Texas — and the nation. The UT System is collaborating across our institutions at unprecedented levels, doubling down on efforts to fulfill our responsibility to help each of our students be prepared and positioned to succeed in college.
The UT System is launching a completion agenda with a difference, grounded in commitments to students around finances, belonging, and advising. Aligned with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s 60X30TX Plan, we are working with our institutions to ensure students receive the support, tools, and quality academics they need to persist and earn their degrees on time. UT System institutions not only will increase graduation rates while keeping education debt in check, but they also will produce more career-ready graduates who immediately contribute to the economy and their communities.
