The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board was created by the Texas Legislature in 1965 and represents the highest authority in the state in matters of public higher education. Beginning with its higher education master plan, Closing the Gaps by 2015, the THECB is charting an aggressive course to help Texas gain and maintain an educational and economic competitive edge among national and international peers. To this end, the THECB aims to make higher education in Texas more accountable, efficient, and innovative stewards of limited resources in producing better outcomes for students.
