The Texas International Education Consortium builds international partnerships, networks, and executes a one-of-a-kind consulting practice to bring new opportunities to our consortium institutions, open additional bridges of cooperation, and serve as a model of multi-institutional cooperation in international education and business.

Texas is an economic powerhouse and our diverse 31 member universities from across the state are innovative, hospitable, collaborative, and are sought-after education destinations for foreign students, faculty, researchers, and investors. TIEC provides deep expertise that contributes to a statewide increase in international education.

For decades, we have partnered with universities, businesses, and governments around the world to develop education and training projects that build lasting connections and increase international opportunities.
