Acknowledgments
A publication of this nature requires multiple contributors to complete.
The Coordinating Board and College For All Texans Foundation would like
to thank the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Houston Endowment
for the financial support to produce this year’s almanac. Funding from
the Gates Foundation additionally supported production of the new
60x30TX.com website. Investment in both the almanac and the website
reflects a continued commitment to help ensure data-driven policy discussions
and decisions in Texas. Thanks are due also to the institutions, which certified
their accountability data in a timely fashion and reviewed almanac data file
drafts, and to the strategic planning and funding staff, who compiled data and
provided fact-checking services once the data were put into print format. And
last but not least, appreciation goes to the many individuals who provided
feedback on last year’s almanac with recommendations for improvements to
this year’s edition.
