Strategic Planning

Defining Our Future

150 years in the making

Texas A&M University stands proudly on the brink of our 150th anniversary. But we’re not known for standing still. Since opening our doors to Texans in 1876, Texas A&M has extended the reach of education, discovery, and impact across the country and around the globe. We still hold fast to discovering, developing, communicating, and applying knowledge, but how we accomplish those missions continues to advance. As the university’s Vision 2020: Creating a Culture of Excellence strategic plan comes to a close and we approach our sesquicentennial, President Michael K. Young has charged thought leaders across campus with vision and strategic planning for the decade ahead.

The Vision

TAMU Vision for the next 150 years
