2017 State of the University Address


October 26, 2017

This week I had the honor of giving the State of the University address at the beautiful Annenberg Presidential Conference Center fresh on the heels of all five former living presidents being here last weekend.

It is always a great day to be an Aggie! I am proud of the many accomplishments of our faculty, staff and students this year and am grateful to former students and The Aggie Network for wonderful support along the way.

 We celebrated milestone achievements in discovery and innovation, addressed challenges met head on and announced a bold new $100 million President’s Excellence Fund for faculty to turn great ideas into reality.

The speech in its entirety can be read online.
