"60x30TX" 2019 Progress Report
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
The "60x30TX" higher education plan for Texas began in 2015 with four goals to be achieved by 2030: (1) 60x30 Educated Population: At least 60 percent of Texans ages 25-34 will have a certificate or degree; (2) Completion: At least 550,000 students in 2030 will complete a certificate, associate, bachelor's or master's from an institution of higher education in Texas; (3) Marketable Skills: All graduates from Texas public institutions of higher education will have completed programs with identified marketable skills; and (4) Student Debt: Undergraduate student loan debt will not exceed 60 percent of first-year wages for graduates of Texas public institutions. Each year, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) provides an update on how the state is progressing toward the goals and targets of the plan. The report helps inform the state about areas that may need additional attention and intervention. This year's report focuses primarily on the data available in the 2018 academic year. Now that the plan has been in place for four years, it is easier to see trends in the progress toward these goals. While progress on many goals has been substantial, accelerated progress is needed on others to meet the state's ambitious goals by 2030.
