Video: Pillars of Student Success

At Texas State University, our top priority is student success. It’s our highest calling as an institution to educate future leaders, empower them to achieve their full potential, and ultimately to help them cross the finish line to earn their college degree. As we accelerate our Run to R1, we will stay true to Texas State’s history and identity as a student-centered community. In this month’s episode of “The Current,” I spoke with Dr. Victoria Black, Associate Dean for Student Services in University College, about the many ways we support our students and give them the tools to succeed.

Mission Moment: Student Success

Doubling down on our commitment to student success is one of my top priorities. We celebrated our best-ever retention rate this fall, but now we are reaching even higher. I established the Presidential Commission on Student Success, with ambitious goals to increase retention and graduation rates, as well as students’ engagement, academic achievement, and wellbeing.
In addition, we will sharpen our focus to grow overall enrollment through strategic recruitment efforts that will be explored by the new Recruitment Task Force. Visit my website for a list of all the presidential commissions and task forces underway to advance our mission.
It’s a great time to be a Bobcat!
