Episode 4: Higher Ed Funding

In this podcast episode, Michael Reeser, Chancellor and CEO of Texas State Technical College System, discusses an outcomes-based formula being used at TSTC to link higher ed dollars to employment outcomes and his advice for other technical colleges and education institutions looking to better prepare their students for the future of work.

It meant that the best interest of our college was now aligned with the best interest of the student who desires to get in, get through, and get a job, and the benefit to the state is also an interest we align with because they want their money's worth when they fund a college.” —Michael Reeser
