2012-2013 COLLEGE READINESS TEAM MOTTO:
College Readiness & Advancement was created to reflect the true core values, vision, and mission of the division as aligned with the college’s overall mission and vision.
The vision of College Readiness & Advancement is to be a model of excellence with the TSTC system and to be recognized as a regional and national leader in "closing the gap" and "increasing access to the educational pipeline" for students from elementary to college that have been traditionally underserved and underrepresented.
College Readiness & Advancement’s mission is to increase TSTC’s partnerships and collaborations with schools, community based organizations, local workforce agencies and government to ensure that students from the Rio Grande Valley are college ready.
The Division of College Readiness & Advancement initiates and implements over 20 outreach programs and projects serving thousands of students, parents, and educational professionals in the Rio Grande Valley. Over the past five years, the Division of College Readiness & Advancement has obtained millions of dollars in local, state, and federal grant funding to ensure a smooth educational pipeline to college.
