About Us

Our mission is to improve access to and increase success in higher education for first and second-generation students from low-to-moderate-income households. This mission is critical to Texas given the state’s shifting demographics and the historic under-representation of growing ethnic groups in higher education.

University Crossroads is one of 40 recognized P-16 Councils developed by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to meet the state’s goals to improve college and career readiness.

We’re a partnership of colleges and universities, chambers of commerce, professional associations, non-profit organizations, scholarship programs, corporations, businesses, the Dallas ISD, Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD, Cedar Hill ISD, Grand Prairie ISD, De Soto ISD, Duncanville ISD, Irving ISD, Arlington ISD, and Williams Preparatory.

Our services include:

  • SAT math preparation classes
  • College workshops
  • One-on-one advising
  • Resume development
  • Scholarship assistance
  • Leadership programs
  • College campus events
  • Summer camps
  • Community service projects
  • Parent programs
  • Financial literacy

For more information regarding services and programs, please see our Program Report and Directory or contact us.

I’ve been to three SAT Math workshops.  It’s really helpful. I know what to expect on the SAT. I’ve learned strategies and how to stay calm. I’ve learned to answer to the best of my ability and not to guess because you get penalized.

I’ve been to three SAT Math workshops.  It’s really helpful. I know what to expect on the SAT. I’ve learned strategies and how to stay calm. I’ve learned to answer to the best of my ability and not to guess because you get penalized. I would really recommend coming to a workshop. I’m not really that good in math and the teachers here have really helped me improve in that area.
