Office of the President

Dear University Community,

We all have just observed a sad anniversary: a year spent battling the COVID-19 Pandemic worldwide.

So much has changed. So many and so much has been lost. The true impact of this dread disease will likely be measured in decades.

Throughout this shared journey, we have been buoyed by the expertise and guidance of science. Today, we have a number of vaccines available and an aggressive national vaccination underway. Now, more than ever, there is real hope.

Incidences are dropping. Hospitalizations are lessening. Vaccines are being delivered.

But this is no time to let down our guard. This is no time to be complacent.

That’s why here at TAMIU we continue an aggressive free COVID-19 testing program, contact tracing, social distancing, hand-washing and masking.

Adhering to this program has enabled us to deliver almost 7,000 COVID-19 tests on campus. Combined with observing all the above guidelines, this level of diligence has kept our campus positivity rate at or below 2%.

Please do your part to help our campus and community recover and move forward: Test, Test and Test again.

Yes, we’re all exhausted by this constant change to all our lives, but in order for us to return to some semblance of normalcy in the months ahead, we must stay true to our path.

Simply put, Dustdevils take care of each other. Please be a part of our recovery: Test, Test and Test Again.


 

Be Safe. Be Well.


Pablo Arenaz, Ph.D.

President
