Hispanic CREO Congratulates the Regents of the University of Texas for Freezing Tuition
University of Texas Regents Freeze Tuition and Help Students in Texas Access Higher Education Opportunities. The University of Texas System regents froze tuition and fees for most students at the flagship Austin campus and gave the school a short-term boost of cash from its endowment fund. This vote came in at a time when colleges and universities are under political pressure to reduce costs and improve graduation rates. For a large number of Hispanic families, cost is the main barrier to higher education.
Hispanic CREO and Freeze Tuition Now would like to congratulate the regents for doing the right thing for the students, parents and taxpayers of Texas. While many universities are going through a difficult time to adjust their system, students are struggling as well to pay for the tuition. This vote is the beginning in assisting students to graduate in time.
Texas has the second largest Hispanic population in the nation. Our goal is to increase higher education entrance and graduation rates. When universities become more efficient, the cost savings can facilitate the access to college, creating the opportunity for potential students to graduate and be part of the workforce in the future.
After this crucial decision, we feel there are greater opportunities in Texas for many who otherwise would never even dream a college education is possible. However, we have much more to do.
We would also like to congratulate everyone in Texas and across the country who helped Hispanic CREO and Freeze Tuition Now with the efforts to freeze tuition in Texas. We thank you for thousands of your personal stories, your videos and countless hours of volunteer time. Keep up the great work. We cannot thank you enough for your overwhelming support.
