jobs and a better life

Ten years ago, Facebook didn’t exist. Ten years before that, we didn’t have the Web. So who knows what jobs will be born a decade from now? Though unemployment is at a 25‑year high, work will eventually return. But it won’t look the same. We will see a more flexible, more freelance, more collaborative work world. It will be run by a generation with new values. Tarrant County College is crucial to assuring that Tarrant County has the highly skilled workforce needed in the competition for jobs. Anyone with a desire to learn and grow can find opportunity at TCC, including returning adults, veterans, underserved populations, and aspiring entrepreneurs. TCC provides a gateway to thousands of students to good jobs and a better life. TCC, a comprehensive two-year institution was established in 1965 and is dedicated to providing quality education that exceeds the expectations of the people of Tarrant County. With five beautiful campuses and nearly 50,000 students enrolled in associate degree and technical programs, TCC is the seventh largest among Texas colleges and universities. At TCC we focus on learning. This means we offer flexibility and variety in the way we schedule and deliver learning opportunities. It means we recognize that your learning style is as individual as your lifestyle. It means that we are constantly updating and upgrading not only what you’ll learn, but also how you’ll learn. Our exceptional instruction will excite your curiosity, develop your critical thinking and give you new problem-solving skills.

One in 19 Tarrant County residents will take a course at Tarrant County College this year. Is getting your education at TCC right for you? Here are some popular reasons students go. • Lower tuition: TCC costs are often significantly lower than public and private four-year colleges and universities. • Convenient locations: Many students are able to attend TCC while living at home, saving on campus-living costs. • Small class size: Students receive personal attention from their instructors. The average class at TCC has fewer than 30 students. • Flexible class schedules: Classes are offered during the day, evening, and weekends to accommodate work schedules. More than 80% of TCC students work part- or full-time jobs and many have family responsibilities. • Transfer to a four-year college or university: Students frequently begin their undergraduate studies at TCC and finish at a four-year school. •Professors concentrate on teaching: TCC instructors focus on teaching students and tend not to be distracted by research and publishing. Professors also have extensive practical experience in

the subjects they teach. Full-time TCC faculty spend more hours in the classroom than faculty in any other sector of higher education. •D  irection for high school students still seeking a career path: At TCC, students can explore different subject areas before committing to a program or enrolling in a certificate program in preparation for a specific career, trade, or profession. •P  romote skill building and job advancement: Students can take continuing education courses to meet specific needs and interests for job advancement, job placement, and personal development.

Tarrant County College is in on the cutting edge of the creation of Generation TX. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) created Generation TX (pronounced “Generation Texas”), a new multi-year, statewide initiative that will organize and mobilize entire communities to help Texas students and their families pursue the path to college and career education beyond high school. Generation TX is a galvanizing movement that inspires and activates people to pursue education beyond high school. Generation TX unifies state and community resources so that they are easier to find and use. “The most effective way for young Texans to improve their lives is by pursuing higher education,” says Governor Rick Perry. “Education will set them on a course for continued success, greater prosperity, and a brighter future. Generation TX will help students achieve.” Tarrant County College also is an Achieving the Dream institution. Achieving the Dream is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping more community college, students, particularly students of color and low-income students to succeed. Built on the values of equity and excellence, Achieving the Dream advances community college student success through work on four fronts: transforming community colleges, influencing policy, developing new knowledge, and engaging the public. Come to Tarrant County College. Tomorrow starts here.
