With expanded broadband access you reap what you sow – a smarter, healthier, more prosperous Texas.
WGU Texas is working diligently to ensure people from all backgrounds and life experiences have an opportunity to pursue an affordable, quality education.
In the Lone Star State today, there are four million Texans with some college and no degree. Yet by 2020, 65 percent of the jobs available in the U.S. will require some college education or above, according to the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. This gap in educational attainment translates to lost career opportunities for Texans without degrees and impacts the state’s overall economy. If we are to preserve — and improve — our current and future prosperity, we must work urgently to close the gap in the shortfall of college graduates needed for the workforce.
