10th Year Report

3. Organization

TSGC has 36 member organizations from all regions of the state. Members are divided into the following categories: Texas Space Grant Colleges (3), Academic Affiliates (22-eight of which are federally designated minority serving institutions), Industrial Members (5), Non-Profit Members (2), and Government Members (4).

TSGC has established a Board of Directors that is responsible for overall policy and guidance as well as performing an overview function for program activities. Board members are selected to provide a balanced representation of the interests of the members. The Board of Directors consists of: the Chair of the Board, the Director, three Associate Directors, three representatives from the Academic Affiliates (one from a minority institution), three representatives from the commercial/non-profit organizations, a representative from the Texas Aerospace Commission, and a representative from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

All TSGC activities are organized and monitored by the Higher Education, General Public/Outreach, and Research committees. These committees support the Program Office in the evaluation of proposals and make recommendations of how funds can be obtained and distributed. The director's staff implements the TSGC programs.


TSGC Organizational Chart

TSGC holds semi-annual meetings of the Board of Directors and of the member institutions. At these meetings the consortium reviews program performance, modifies existing programs, and establishes new programs.

TSGC is unique in that all members can submit proposals for funding of projects under the three program areas. Committees that include the Director, the Associate Directors and additional members selected for their related expertise, review the proposals.

In addition to the NSGC&FP funding, TSGC members provide additional direct and in-kind support. Since 1994 the TSGC membership has provided $800 K of direct support through annual assessments and special projects. The membership also has provided $7.6 M of in-kind support.
