Closing the Gaps by 2015

Closing the Gaps by 2015 was adopted in October 2000 by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board with strong support from the state's educational, business and political communities. The plan is directed at closing educational gaps in Texas as well as between Texas and other states. It has four goals: to close the gaps in student participation, student success, excellence and research.

The Closing the Gaps plan includes strategies for reaching each of the goals and an annual performance measuring system. The plan and related documents are provided below.
