As a member of the Council of Public University Presidents and Chancellors, Tarleton State University has joined the Texas higher education community in a unified fundraising initiative to provide emergency aid to college students impacted by Hurricane Harvey, through the Harvey HELP Fund. The effort will provide emergency funds for nearly 500,000 students and their families recovering from and managing immediate life-and-logistics emergencies. HELP stands for Higher Education Learning Pathways. Research suggests many students leave school because of non-academic challenges related to work, family and personal finance. Hurricane Harvey is an extreme examples of the range of issues that can knock students off course, and TSU is here to help.
