TXP hired for Charleston, SC higher education study
February 2012 – The Charleston Regional Development Alliance selected the project team of TXP, Inc. and MGT of America, Inc. to assess the economic and community impact of the four publicly supported institutions of higher learning in the Charleston, SC area:
- The Citadel
- College of Charleston
- Medical University of South Carolina
- Trident Technical College
The TXP/MGT project team understands the importance of higher education and workforce skills training to the local economy, public sector, and the individual. Not only does higher education benefit firms and their employees (through improving labor force capacity and therefore increasing earnings), a better-educated workforce more broadly enhances a region’s economic development competitiveness and reduces the demands for social services. TXP will be the lead consulting firm for this effort.
