The Texas Reskilling & Upskilling through Education (TRUE) initiative aims to prepare students for in-demand careers accelerating their transition to work while also building an enduring education infrastructure to support a thriving Texas economy throughout the diverse regions of the state. The colleges will work with business partners and others in their communities to bolster this talent pipeline strategy.
Texas community college leaders have worked tirelessly to support the state’s response to the COVID-19 national crisis, during which millions of Texans have filed for unemployment and the mismatch between workforce needs and skilled workers has deepened. A majority of these displaced workers lack the skills and education needed to successfully and quickly reenter the workplace. Texas community colleges currently provide more than 90 percent of credit-bearing career and technical education and are the best positioned to close these skills gaps to good-paying jobs.
