Texas has seven institutions classified by the Higher Education Coordinating Board as 'emerging research universities.' They include the UT institutions in Arlington, Dallas, El Paso and San Antonio, as well as UNT, Texas Tech and the University of Houston. They all want to be Tier 1, 'first choice' universities for high school graduates, not runners-up to UT-Austin, A&M or Rice.
