Networking with Colleagues
The WLI project helped me to network throughout the system. Even the Harlingen group of ladies got closer. We would go to lunch and learned a lot about each other. Valerie is faculty and I had no reason to communicate with her prior to this project and I’ve been able to meet a really nice person and find out about her world. -- Keri Gutierrez, Inaugural learning team member, TSTC Harlingen


The class has chosen for their project, to promote the TSTC values throughout our System. We will all benefit from the hard work of this group and the purposeful practice of the TSTC values:

  • Innovation
  • Responsiveness
  • Leadership
  • Excellence
  • Collaboration
  • Accountability
  • Stewardship
