The State of Texas Academic Resource Link (STARLINK) network currently provides over 150 hours of professional development programming annually to 220 member colleges and universities in twenty-four states and Canada. Plus, through the U.S. Military and embassies we provide training in 22 countries around the world.
The State of Texas Academic Resource Link (STARLINK) was established in 1989 with an initial three-year Perkins State Leadership grant awarded to the Dallas Community College District (DCCCD) and the Austin Community College (ACC) jointly by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Also, in 1997 STARLINK began the concept work to create the Virtual College of Texas (VCT). From this initial work the VCT was created and in 1998 the Austin STARLINK Office was officially assigned to the VCT project. VCT now operates as a separate TACC entity.
Today, STARLINK seminars are delivered as streaming videos and every member college receives a DVD of each program which they may duplicate. Every month an additional professional development video is the featured streaming video and our extensive program library includes long videos as well as over 130 short 3-7 minute teaching tips. Look for them on both YouTube and Facebook.
