President’s Message

I am honored and pleased to serve as the President of Texas A&M University-Texarkana, a university committed to academic excellence, student success, and community engagement and leadership.

Texas A&M-Texarkana has served the higher-education needs of our region since 1971 and has been a proud member of The Texas A&M University System since 1996. We have had a great past and look forward to an even stronger future. Thanks to the vision and hard work of our faculty, staff, and community supporters, we have embarked on a new era at our lovely Bringle Lake campus. We are transforming an already-fine institution into a truly comprehensive university that offers a wide array of degree programs, student activities, and residential facilities. 

While we provide opportunities associated with large universities, we also hold fast to our small-campus feel.  Indeed, faculty know students by their names, not their ID numbers. Our small class sizes encourage interaction among students and faculty, and our staff are dedicated to meeting students’ individual needs. This emphasis on student engagement, both inside and outside the classroom, is a hallmark of the A&M-Texarkana experience and one that makes this university a very special place to earn your college degree.

All of us on campus are here to help you achieve your educational goals and are proud that you have joined the Eagle Family as it soars to even greater heights.

Dr. Emily Cutrer
