Dr. Henry G. Cisneros
Institute for Emerging Leaders

In August 2018, the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents approved the establishment of the Dr. Henry G. Cisneros Institute for Emerging Leaders at Texas A&M-San Antonio (A&M-SA). Named in honor of the Honorable Dr. Henry G. Cisneros and in recognition of his lead gift of $1 million, the Cisneros Institute will serve as an incubator of leadership talent to serve the nation. 

Vision for the Institute
Texas A&M University-San Antonio has forged a vision for an institute that will develop graduates who are skilled in taking initiative, building and cultivating effective teams, managing group dynamics, making ethical decisions, leading change in complex environments and dealing with organizational challenges. These emerging leaders will strengthen the communities of South Texas and beyond by effecting social and economic change. Students participating in programs will be well-prepared to solve some of our region’s most pressing problems. 

Supporting the Institute
We hope you will consider building upon the momentum of Dr. Cisneros’ initial gift to help bring our vision for the institute to fruition. Your major gift will support scholarships, internships, and fellowships for outstanding students as well as endowed academic positions to attract outstanding leadership faculty, a leadership lecture series and a world-class research program. Together, we will provide a world-class educational experience for our students that is worthy of the legacy of Dr. Cisneros.
