Welcome Back, Staff!

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Over the past year, I have learned a great deal about Texas A&M and the incredible scholars, thinkers, builders and creators who position us to do such meaningful work, distinguishing this institution as model of educational excellence. I have met with many staff members from across campus, listened to your stories, and it is clear that your contributions help make this university so special. I am excited to meet many more of our devoted staff as this effort to do so is far from over.

As we begin this new academic year, I want to encourage all of you to do the same. Turn to your colleague across the hall or up the stairs, and you too will be stunned to know what incredible things are being accomplished at this university. Now more than ever, it is imperative that we are committed to communication and collaboration as we build upon our existing momentum as a world-class institution.

We are poised to do not only good but great things in the coming year. My aim is to ensure that you have what you need to continue doing what you already do so well and to help you reach new heights of service and accomplishment. To all of you, I want to express a heartfelt “thank you” for the extraordinary work that you do every single day. 

Warm Regards,
