Community colleges are economic and cultural engines in every part of the state, vital to their communities and key to advancing the individual aspirations of students.

Texas Success Center

The Texas Success Center, a member of the national Student Success Center Network, creates a coherent, statewide framework for action and supports the 50 community college districts in the state as they evaluate, align, and integrate their work to increase student success.

This comprehensive reform strategy reflects the Texas Association of Community Colleges’ dedication to socio-economic mobility through career-focused postsecondary success.  For that purpose, the association founded the Texas Success Center to provide statewide coordination of student success strategies and to tighten the linkages between practice, research and policy. In the first year, 48 of the 50 districts, serving 99% of 730,000+ students, have committed to implementing guided pathways at scale.

Through the center’s work, colleges build capacity to implement and scale practices to help more students earn meaningful credentials, transfer to universities with no loss of credit, and gain employment in careers with value in the labor market.

The Texas Success Center's mission is to:

  • Build the capacity of TACC member colleges to engage in and advance student success efforts at scale

  • Build the capacity of TACC to evaluate, support, and scale college student success efforts

  • Develop and propose public policy change to enhance student success
