SWTJC partners with various region educators to address higher education needs
Gonzales speaks at forumMiddle Rio Grande Development Council’s Education Committee, Southwest Texas Junior College, and Sul Ross Rio Grande College, hosted the first ever regional educational forum named “Collaborative Approach to Education in the Middle Rio Grande Region” in Uvalde on Thursday (April 6).

The forum’s objective was to provide the first step in addressing as a collaborative effort the higher education needs of our region.



“Our goal is collaboration—partnerships are key not only to Southwest Texas Junior College but also to the advancement of our region,” said Dr. Hector Gonzales, college president. “It’s hard to advance higher-ed or advance anything in isolation.”


The focus of this forum centered on a discussion of the current certificate and degrees offered by both post-secondary institutions along with present and future trends in dual credit.


Other topics addressed were dual credit, early college high schools, career technology, current financial models, proposed state legislation, and pathways models.


The forum was led by Dr. Hector Gonzales, SWTJC President; Dr. Paul Sorrels, Sul Ross State University-Rio Grande College Vice President and Gilberto Gonzalez, Superintendent of Eagle Pass Independent School District and Chairman of the MRGDC Education Committee.
