The Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color (Consortium) officially launched in 2013, supported by grant awards from the Greater Texas Foundation (GTF), the Trellis Foundation (formerly TG), the Kresge Foundation, and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The Consortium focuses on improving educational outcomes for Latino and African American male students by connecting partners across educational sectors (i.e. independent school districts, 2-year colleges, and 4-year institutions). Our Consortium member institutions are part of a statewide learning community that is committed to implementing and sustaining effective research-based policies, programs, and practices focused on increasing individual success and post-secondary completion for male students of color.
