Knowledge Development Steering Committee

The educators, researchers, practitioners, and advocates who comprise the knowledge development steering committee contribute to a statewide research agenda aimed to improve community college practice and to inform policy benefiting colleges’ pathways reform strategies. These esteemed partners advise the overall knowledge development strategy. The Texas Success Center directs and implements the strategy while providing opportunity for committee members to contribute to or collaborate on commissioned new knowledge development activities.
