Dual Credit - PACE Program

Hello, my name is Katy Buerger and I am the PACE Program Coordinator at UT Tyler. I am responsible for overseeing all aspects of the PACE Program, which was officially created in May of 2015 to serve high school students throughout Texas by providing opportunities for dual college credit. I am originally from Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Tyler for this position in early 2015. I have a Master's Degree in Education from the University of Louisville and have worked in Admissions, Advising, and Dual Credit in various capacities for the past nine years.

I greatly enjoy working with the high school student population and believe that dual credit opportunities better prepare students for the academic rigor they will face in college. It is my goal to ensure that UT Tyler provides a top-notch, quality academic experience both inside and outside the classroom so that students are motivated and prepared to move on to college after high school.
