Discover TASSSP! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Texas Association of Student Special Services Programs (TASSSP) website. Our association is a vibrant one born of the struggle in Texas to provide educational opportunity and access for underrepresented populations in post secondary educational arenas. TASSSP members have great passion and a long lasting history for serving low income, first generation and disabled students throughout the lone star state. For over 30 years, TASSSP has been consistently celebrated in our region for providing advocacy for and dedicated service to learners of all ages.
This organization is a proud and prominent regional member of the Southwest Association of Student Assistance Program (SWASAP). We are also dedicated supporters of our national champion, the Council for Opportunity in Education (COE). We have consistently maintained a strong leadership presence and political voice for the duration of our existence.
This site has been established to be a valuable, informational resource in which to share our history, to publicize opportunities for service as well as to unite our membership with association officers. Prospective partners and others who wish to discover the spirit of TASSSP will gain great insight into our organization. We have a professional yet fervent mission to support and empower students as they journey toward their educational dreams.
As president of TASSSP, I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve its members. In order to remain effective, we must be vigilant and ever evolving. Each member is encouraged to contact me or any officer with suggestions for growth as well as with questions regarding becoming an active servant in our great association. If you are not yet a member, unite with us in our efforts to continue in the fight for educational opportunity and access. TASSSP gains its strength from its members. A dynamic and dedicated membership produces an effective and energetic organization. Invest your talents, skills and abilities in TASSSP. Get involved in the evolution of your association. We are all serving a higher calling. Answer the call. The time is now.
