Texas is focused on meeting or exceeding the goals of 60x30TX, the state’s higher education strategic plan.

I’m writing this blog (my first, incidentally) as I travel to speak at a conference. That means a good bit of time in flight and waiting in airports to catch up on some paperwork from the office that didn’t fit into my daily schedule.

They are all just begging me to look at them. I can almost hear each imploring, “Pick me! Pick me!”
