The mission of the Center for P-16 Initiatives at Texas State University is to increase the level of educational attainment for underserved students in Central Texas through academic and applied research, educational partnerships, and community outreach programs.
At the Center for P-16 Initiatives, we believe:
College success is possible for all students
Children who are economically disadvantaged can be successful if they have the necessary community-based supports
The roots for educational success begin with high-quality pre-kindergarten experiences
Making college accessible depends on the transparency of the college application process
