The Texas Bioscience Institute (TBI), located on the Scott and White West Campus, opened in the fall of 2006. As a partner with community, education and business interests, Temple College took a leadership role in developing the TBI’s innovative educational model involving area high schools, colleges and universities to bring new educational opportunities to Central Texas citizens.
The Texas Bioscience Institute offers STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) based programs to promote a skilled and knowledgeable medical and biotechnology workforce in Central Texas. Texas Bioscience Institute programs serve high school students, transitioning military personnel, military dependents, displaced workers, and other certificate, associate or bachelor degree-seeking students.
In January 2006, the TBI received a Middle College designation which allows dual credit learners to be enrolled in more than two dual credit classes per semester. In 2013, the TBI received the Star Award which recognizes exceptional contributions toward meeting one or more of the goals of Closing the Gaps by 2015, the Texas higher education plan adopted in 2000.
