Since I started at Texas State University on July 1, I have had the privilege of meeting brilliant scholars and incredible students, exploring our campuses, and discovering innovative research centers — and I've barely scratched the surface of all TXST has to offer. Join me on this journey. This is the first of my new, monthly messages to the TXST community, The Current. I'll share three things each month that capture the TXST spirit: a video interview about a key initiative or priority, a profile of an exceptional Bobcat in NEXT Up, and a closer look at how we are advancing our noble mission to discover, teach, create, and serve.

I shared my vision for the future of TXST at Faculty and Staff Convocation this morning, which includes expanding our research enterprise, doubling down on our commitment to student success, and enhancing our Round Rock Campus. As we kick off the new academic year, freshmen from our record-breaking incoming class have moved into the residence halls, classes start Monday, and we’re just three weeks away from our football season home opener at Bobcat Stadium.

This is a great time to be a Bobcat!
