Texas State Technical College
Vice Chancellor, Chief Policy Officer
Michael Bettersworth is vice chancellor and chief policy officer for Texas State Technical College. TSTC provides certificates and associate degrees driven by job demand and aligned with industry needs. The college was created with a state mandated mission of economic development. For the last 15 years Michael has focused his career on improving this link between education and industry. In 2002 he launched TSTC’s forecasting division to identify emerging high-tech skills and occupations needed by Texas employers. This work led to new courses and degree programs at colleges across the state. Recently, Michael helped design and implement the nation’s first education funding model based directly on student earnings. He is now launching the Center for Employability Outcomes (www.c4eo.org) to bring new skills data tools and applications to market.
