Houston Community College’s governing board approved a resolution Thursday reaffirming its support of the Texas Dream Act. Seven out of nine trustees voted in favor of the resolution, which states that the HCC Board of Trustees “respectfully endorses the continuation of policies and legislation that continue to build Houston and the great State of Texas as leaders in educational access [and] opposes changes to Texas laws on determination of resident status as used in higher education, including but not limited to the Texas Dream Act.”
