Higher Education Committee

Becoming a leader in the digital economy requires significant improvements to our higher education systems. Houston's higher education ecosystem has grown tremendously over the past twenty years, but it remains under-degreed and under-funded. In order to advance the region's talent pipeline and strengthen its workforce, the Higher Education Advisory Committee seeks to identify solutions for increasing the quantity and improving the quality of Baccalaureate degrees awarded by Houston region institutions to ensure the Houston region’s competitiveness to other major metro areas.

The Partnership's Priorities for the Higher Education Committee

  • Analyzing Houston’s higher education ecosystem in comparison to other major metro areas

  • Identifying solutions to grow regional institutions

  • Increasing quantity and quality of undergraduate degrees awarded by regional institutions

  • Improving the quality and reputation of Houston's institutions
