THECB’s 60x30TX Plan: An Overview

It’s a tall order, but we know Texas is capable.

This fall, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board released its new 60x30TX plan. By 2030, they say, at least 60 percent of Texans ages 25-34 will have a certificate or degree.

The THECB reports that higher education in Texas has been on the upswing since 2000, adding 540,000 students and doubling enrollment for Hispanic and African-American students. They also report that annual postsecondary credentials have increased by 61%. But to compete nationally and internationally, Texas has more work to do.

Check out the full PDF of the THECB’s 60x30TX strategic plan to learn more. Then, tell us what you think. How is your college reacting to this challenge?
