Mission, Vision, Philosophy, and Core Values

Agency Mission

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board promotes access, affordability, quality,

success, and cost efficiency in the state’s institutions of higher education, through

Closing the Gaps and its successor plan, resulting in a globally competent workforce that

positions Texas as an international leader in an increasingly complex world economy. 


Agency Vision

The THECB will be recognized as an international leader in developing and implementing

innovative higher education policy to accomplish our mission. 


Agency Philosophy

The THECB will promote access to and success in quality higher education across the state

with the conviction that access and success without quality is mediocrity and that quality

without access and success is unacceptable. 


The Coordinating Board’s core values are:


Accountability: We hold ourselves responsible for our actions and welcome every opportunity

to educate stakeholders about our policies, decisions, and aspirations.


Efficiency: We accomplish our work using resources in the most effective manner.


Collaboration: We develop partnerships that result in student success and a highly qualified,

globally competent workforce.


 Excellence: We strive for preeminence in all our endeavors.
