Texas International Education Consortium
For 31 years, the Texas International Education Consortium (TIEC) has been calling upon the expertise and knowledge of more than 25,000 faculty and administrators from Texas universities in providing services to the global educational community.
Affiliated universities include not only programs that are world-famous for their academics and scholarship, but numerous specialized research centers and institutes, extension and technical training programs, and public policy and service units. Each of these resources lends its support and expertise through active participation in TIEC projects.
Located in Austin, Texas, TIEC occupies a multi-purpose headquarters facility including both its institutional services programs and its study and training programs. TIEC headquarters is home to offices and classrooms of The Texas Intensive English Program (TIEP), a division of TIEC that provides English as a second language instruction to international students from around the globe.
TIEC is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of the presidents of its participating universities. These universities include members of the Association of American Universities, the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. All are fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
