Higher Education Explorer: An Interactive Tool for Texas

October 17, 2012

The Texas Tribune Higher Education Explorer captures data on all 148 public and private colleges and universities in the state. Combining key academic, enrollment and financial records, this database collects and presents statistics about Texas’ institutions of higher learning in a way that is easy to understand and simple to navigate.

The Higher Ed Explorer complements their Public Schools Explorer, a comprehensive database of all of Texas’ 1,300 districts and 8,500 public schools, which we launched in July 2012. Taken together, these databases provide useful tools for parents, students and policymakers interested in understanding the data and trends behind education in Texas.
