Biographical or Historical Information

TACT is a voluntary, nonpartisan organization of teachers, librarians, and research personnel at all the state-supported senior colleges and universities of Texas. Founded in 1948, it works through its chapters, elective state officers (non-salaried), committees, and its individual members to improve the quality of higher education in Texas. TACT was instrumental in achieving legislation providing for Social Security coverage for college teachers, creation of the Texas Commission on Higher Education, eligibility of retired college teachers to draw retirement benefits while teaching one-third time, college teacher access to tax-sheltered annuities, increased retirement benefits, improved salaries, and state document depositories at public college and university libraries. [Excerpts from TACT brochure, 1963] Mission Statement: To provide the faculty and staff of 4-year state universities a conduit that will inform the Texas public, Governor, Legislature, other state and private agencies of the views and concerns of higher education, as well as keep TACT's members informed of the various issues that impact higher education.
