Texas State University Plan

Message from President Damphousse

Dr. Denise M. Trauth, president

          As we embark on a new University Plan, I hope you share my excitement for what’s ahead and what we can accomplish together. Your hard work over the past several years has positioned us to soar to even greater heights in the years ahead.

           Based on a lyric in our alma mater, “O, Alma Mater, set upon the green hills, with turrets pointing upward to the sky, we yield to thee our love and our devotion; mother of hopes and aspirations high,” our Hopes and Aspirations High vision reflects our noble, higher calling to keep students at the heart of all we do. It captures the potential and promise ahead for them and for those of us who have made helping students succeed our life’s work. The Hopes and Aspirations High vision serves as the foundation for Texas State University’s 2023-2029 University Plan.

          The 2023-2029 University Plan guides us to our envisioned future. It builds on the momentum we experienced, leads us toward achieving the Hopes and Aspirations High vision, and provides a path for elevating student success and running to Carnegie R1 status. The plan also reflects our commitment to increasing student enrollment, expanding the Round Rock Campus, and becoming an employer of choice.

           Specifically, the 2023-2029 University Plan articulates the mission, shared values, goals, and initiatives. It plays an invaluable role in directing our actions and leading the university toward continued success. The goals of supporting student success; advancing academic excellence; expanding discovery, innovation, creativity, and research; enriching community, collaboration, and partnerships; and developing infrastructure strategically shape our future actions.

             I look forward to working with my outstanding Texas State colleagues to successfully pursue our strategic goals and make our Hopes and Aspirations High a reality.
