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.

It’s helpful to be around people who are so knowledgeable about the college application process. University Crossroads is partnered with so many universities and they can provide some direction and advice.
