Student Success Initiatives

Student Success is at the heart of Texas A&M – Corpus Christi’s mission. Everything in which the university is engaged – research, teaching, service, and faculty and staff activities – is intended to enable our students to achieve at the highest levels. Maintaining a university-wide commitment for our diverse community to ensure student academic achievement and personal well-being is highly valued and essential to student success.

Since 2019, the Student Success Council and other constituencies have engaged the campus community in a collective effort to explore ways to enhance our student success agenda. Through cross-divisional engagement on student success, we have become more data-informed, conducted research, and discussed strategies and action steps on how to develop, nurture, and become innovative in our approach to student success.
