The Texas Interdisciplinary Plan is a collection of selective academic programs that has operated jointly out of the College of Natural Sciences and College of Liberal Arts since 2002. The Texas Interdisciplinary Plan's mission is to transform the learning experience for its students by creating small academic communities that first promotes academic excellence and then encourages intellectual investment. The main programs housed in the Texas Interdisciplinary Plan include TIP Scholars and TIP Mentor Academy. Together, these programs serve approximately 900 students each year. Many students participate in all programs and therefore, are served all 4 years of their college career.
