In connection with House Concurrent Resolution No. 159 of the 80th Texas Legislature, Regular Session,
2007, in mid-2008, the Texas Governor Rick Perry, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, and Speaker
of the House of Representatives Tom Craddick created the Select Commission on Higher Education and
Global Competitiveness with a charge to draft a Texas Compact that reflects a long-term vision and stepby-
step plan to attain the following goals by 2020:
(1) Educating the population of Texas to levels comparable to the highest performing competitor
states and nations;
(2) Achieving global recognition for Texas public colleges and universities for excellence in their
core missions and for innovations that strengthen the state’s economy and improve the quality of
life for its citizens; and
