Dear Comptroller Strayhorn:
We enjoyed the article titled "Close To Home" on partnerships between community colleges and universities. The North Harris Montgomery Community College District works closely to assure that courses offered by our five colleges will transfer easily to four-year institutions. We have 65 articulation agreements with many universities and joint admissions agreements with four universities. These four universities have more than 400 students jointly admitted with our college district.
We are also bringing the universities "closer to home" for people in our district. The University Center located in the Woodlands partners with six Texas universities to offer 27 bachelor's degrees, 29 master's degrees, two doctoral degrees and two post-baccalaureate teacher certifications.
