We strive for excellence above all else. Those who represent the A&M-SA family—faculty, staff, students and alumni—do so with the highest standards of integrity and characterize the grit, honor and traditions of the campus community.


We use a number of co-curricular activities, including experiential learning, as catalysts to achieve active student learning. We use intentional and innovative teaching and applied learning methods to educate a diverse student body, enhance retention and encourage timely graduation.


We think big and work diligently to fulfill our aspirations. We are an agile, innovative and entrepreneurial university that prepares students, faculty and staff to create a better future and transform the world, starting with our local community, region and state.


We create opportunities for a diverse student body by embracing the demographics of our region and the military-connected community. We are inclusive of all learners and welcome students where they are, socially, economically and academically. We prepare traditional and nontraditional students with marketable skills and undergraduate research experiences that contribute to a meaningful life and a fulfilling career.


We value interdisciplinary approaches, partnerships and research opportunities that respond to needs across public and private industries, the military community, school districts, other colleges and universities and the Texas A&M University System.
