In 2014, Tom Sugar had a discussion with Dr. Paula Short from the University of Houston about what each felt were the most important changes universities could make to increase graduation rates. That discussion led to the launch of Houston Guided Pathways to Success, the nation’s first regional consortium of two- and four-year schools working together to improve transfer pathways and college completion rates.

On this episode, the two talk about how they were able to get more than a dozen schools to buy into the program and implement a comprehensive set of interdependent strategies for the good of their institutions and the Houston region as a whole.

The two also discuss their work together on EAB’s new Moon Shot for Equity. Finally, they share tips for university leaders who aren’t sure where to start in eliminating equity gaps at their institutions.
