To achieve our goals, we have worked to raise public awareness on the importance of post-secondary degree completion and  training.  Our subcommittees have promoted best practices for successful transition into higher education and degree completion. We have also engaged local business and degree granting institutions to ensure that working adults will have the support necessary to pursue a higher education. We have worked with the City of Houston and Galveston to host a series of college fairs, offering city employees the opportunity to learn more about degree programs available to adults.
