Office of the President

Dear TAMIU Community,

As the nation, state and city continue a measured COVID-19 Pandemic recovery, I want you to know that TAMIU has its sights firmly set on a campus future focused on a return to a vibrant, on-campus experience this Fall for students, faculty and staff.

We’ve followed the science, and our strict adherence to safety protocols, aggressive testing and a vaccination program here has kept our COVID-19 prevalence below 2% -- among the lowest in The Texas A&M University System, throughout this Pandemic response. In addition to on-campus rapid testing and vaccination opportunities, we will continue to require on-campus face coverings, social distancing and rigorous hand-washing. We’ll work with our Federal, City, State, and A&M System partners to guide our recovery, and adjust operations as necessary.

We’re eager to return to a traditional classroom experience and committed to providing students with the full University dynamic they deserve: a high-quality experience in excellence. That means on-campus courses, insights and support services to foster a well-rounded graduate competitive and successful in their chosen career or graduate school.

TAMIU’s commitment, resilience and resolve throughout the Pandemic has empowered all members of the University community to continue to succeed. Students, faculty and staff showed that they could not only meet the challenges of unparalleled change -- but surmount them. Our faculty, student and staff commitment, resilience and resolve enabled us to deliver our mission as an essential State agency. We’ve been fully operational throughout, providing all needed resources and services. This same commitment and spirit will drive our campus’ return and recovery.

The TAMIU CARES program, which provides grants to students for expenses related to COVID-19, has awarded over $6 million in emergency grants. Additional CARES funding undergirded response resources utilized. Local donors and partners also provided additional scholarship and resource support. Without this level of partnership, our path forward would have been slowed.

I also want to single out the remarkable and ongoing volunteer efforts throughout the Pandemic response provided by TAMIU students, faculty and staff. This year, TAMIU student nurses and faculty have generated over 3000+ volunteer service hours at City-hosted vaccine drives. Last year’s response saw them provide 6500+ service hours. These efforts joined a TAMIU-wide community service student drive that generated over 50,000 service hours as part of the University’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. Engineering students made protective equipment for first-responders, while other students helped conduct vital contact-tracing or assisted some of our most vulnerable citizens. This level of community engagement, during a Pandemic no less, is truly inspiring.

While we’ve never been closed and have provided services throughout this shared challenge, I am truly looking forward to welcoming students home to campus. We’ve missed them and they tell us that they have missed us too. While so much has changed, it will be nice to get back to something that has a permanent place in our hearts and minds …our shared alma mater.


 

Be Safe. Be Well.


Pablo Arenaz, Ph.D.

President
