The Texas State Technical College West Texas, after watching its enrollment plummet since its high in 2008, has finally–finally–stopped the drop. Whew! As visitors may know, the college reported just 810 enrollments to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board for fall 2012. Of course, we’ll all need to see what actually gets reported to the Co-Board for fall 2013, but these numbers, which I obtained through the Texas Public Information Act, are encouraging. There’s no doubt about it; numbers matter again at TSTC West Texas. Please see the screen shots below. Click on the images to enlarge them.
Stay tuned. We’ll be talking about employment rates, “placement” rates, and technical college public relations next.
