A message from the Blueprint 2020 Task Force
and Risk Management Group-COVID-19

During the past eight months, Texas A&M University-San Antonio, our community and our world have grappled with an unexpected and overwhelming challenge. Together, by adhering to our shared values, we tackled a global pandemic’s uncertainties with creativity, flexibility and resilience. We deployed new ways to teach, work and live while also building an adaptive model for our campus. Our relative youth as an institution offers a distinct advantage – as an organization, we are agile and respond to changing conditions quickly.

Here’s what you need to know

Our environment requires us to continue to be innovative and maintain a vigilant focus on our priorities: 1) the safety and health of our community and 2) advancing our students’ academic progress. The following document provides an overview of how we will deliver our mission and our strategy. We’ve titled this plan “Fall 2020 Community. Safety. TOGETHER.” to align with what is top of mind. Throughout the plan, you will find references for how we will learn, work and live on campus during Fall 2020.

We look forward to a time when we will all be together to reflect on how we continued to advance our mission in the face of enormous challenges. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do to support our students. We hope that you continue to take care of yourselves and each other. We welcome your feedback and suggestions for improving this document or communicating these important details of the plan at CST@tamusa.edu.
