About the Center for P-16 Initiatives at Texas State University

The mission of the Center for P-16 Initiatives at Texas State University is to improve college readiness and increase the level of educational attainment for underserved students in Central Texas through research, educational partnerships, and programs. The Caminitos Collaborative, our multi-disciplinary research approach, focuses on factors affecting prekindergarten education with an emphasis on early literacy, nutrition, and fine and gross motor skill development. This innovative, culturally responsive family-school-university research and programming partnership to support high-quality early childhood education annually puts more than 400 local children on the path to higher education.
