Tri-Agency Priorities


In response to the charges laid out by Governor Abbott, the Texas Education Agency, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and Texas Workforce Commission partnered to identify three high-priority focus areas for the Tri-Agency Workforce Initiative. Bold action in all three areas is needed to advance the Tri-Agency mission and vision. The Tri-Agency partners look forward to the work ahead.  

Priority One: Pathways

Support efficient and flexible pathways to earning degrees, certificates, and other credentials linked to high-wage, in-demand jobs.

Priority Two: Support

Ensure students receive the supports necessary to succeed at all stages of their educations and in their transitions to the workforce.

Priority Three: Infrastructure

Create a robust infrastructure for interagency collaboration around common goals, data, and processes to ensure improved student outcomes and meet employers’ needs.
