Leadership Team

TSTC employs an organizational structure that best supports its vision for the next fifty years:  providing state-of-the-art technical education to place more Texans. Prior to the consolidation into a single SACSCOC accreditation in 2015, TSTC was organized into four vertically integrated colleges with a governing system office. Today it operates as a single statewide college with 10 campuses across Texas.

Concurrent with this consolidation, TSTC merged its historically fragmented administrative structure into a single, statewide leadership team. Special care was taken to apply the senior-most talent to roles that have the broadest benefit to the consolidated college. Below are the resulting titles and functional roles for our Leadership Team followed by campus leadership and the Governance, Risk and Compliance executive.


The TSTC Leadership Team includes:
