"60x30TX" 2017 Progress Report
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
Central to the goals of "60x30TX" is maintaining Texas as a global economic player by having an educated population, making them aware of their marketable skills, and helping them manage their student loan debt. If the 2016 progress report for "60x30TX" was about getting out the word, this report is about expanding that reach and advocating for the plan, establishing frameworks and best practices, realigning local and regional goals and targets, and promoting efforts that champion the success of Texas students in higher education. It also is about looking at the data, building on early gains, and shoring up initial lags for the targets of each goal. Overall, the data that is included in this report for the second year under "60x30TX" reveals the state is making positive, modest progress toward most of the plan's goals and targets, with a decrease in two targets since the 2015 baseline. While there is progress to celebrate, much work remains to accelerate progress in all areas of the plan. Because "60x30TX" was adopted two years ago, this report shows just one or two years of data for most measures. It provides breakouts and explanations of the "60x30TX" metrics, and displays goals and targets through 2030. In addition, this report summarizes activities or initiatives that support the strategies listed in the plan. Pursuing those strategies, as well as the ones developed by institutions, will help the state to meet the four goals.
