Minita Ramirez, Ph. D.
Vice President
Division of Student Success

Welcome to Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) and the Division of Student Success!

As we continue this Spring semester and push forward towards the end of the semester, take the time to breath and reflect on the good things in our lives. All of us, watching the news are consumed with the COVID-19 crisis, I hope all of you are taking pause to be safe, careful and staying healthy.

The new environment we are working with, the virtual/online has taken many different forms. For some of you, the classes are live and your professors are lecturing, for others, the professors have videotaped themselves and you are able to log into to class and watch as many times as you wish, and still yet for others the class may be a series of articles, notes, videos, reports, tests and presentations. All of these are acceptable in order for you to receive the quality education you deserve.

No one asked for this and no one is to blame, everyone is trying to do the best they can to keep our beloved University going so that each of you finishes this semester strong and moving forward towards your degree. Bon Jovi said: “When what we are used to doing is not an option, we do what we can.”
