Message from President Trauth
As we prepare to implement the Texas State University 2017-2023 University Plan, we should pause to reflect on the many accomplishments of our current strategic plan. The 2012-2017 University Plan provided a clear path for achieving academic success and progressing toward our goal of becoming a National Research University. We added numerous degree programs, constructed new buildings, increased student support services, and received national recognition for our academic programs.
Because of your dedicated efforts, we have made great strides in becoming a world-class institution and I am confident that we will ultimately achieve our vision. We have proven that, through a purposeful and focused planning process, Texas State continues to provide an outstanding educational experience that opens the door to endless possibilities and future career opportunities for our growing population of diverse students. Working together, we clearly demonstrate that the successful education of our students is our primary purpose. I thank you all for everything that you do to make Texas State the great place that it is.
The 2017-2023 University Plan builds on the momentum we experienced in our 2012-2017 plan, and will help us achieve even greater heights as we continue toward our goal of becoming a National Research University. We have committed to increasing student retention and graduation rates, expanding graduate programming, adding more opportunities for undergraduate and graduate research, and significantly increasing funding for scholarships.
I look forward to working with my Texas State colleagues to successfully pursue and achieve our strategic plan initiatives over the next six years.
