That’s exactly what The University of Texas System is doing. With nine universities and six health institutions, The University of Texas System serves more than 215,000 students and awards nearly 49,000 degrees and certificates a year. The 2014 fiscal year budget is more than $14.6 billion, plus $2.5 billion in research expenditures, making it one of the nation’s largest systems of public higher education. Everything is bigger in Texas, after all.
