Young: A&M's State is Strong, Vibrant

Texas A&M University President Michael K. Young delivered his 2019 State of the University Address on October 10.
 
Young described A&M’s state as “strong and vibrant,” and “conditioned to face and overcome challenges, to strive for excellence every day, to celebrate success and plan for more.”
 
Young discussed having the most research funding in A&M history, being the largest university in the nation in terms of enrollment, and reaching $3.6 billion raised in the university’s $4 billion capital campaign, which runs until the end of 2020.
 
Texas A&M has had three strategic pillars at it continues to grow as an institution: Transformational Education, Discovery and Innovation. Young announced an addition during his remarks.
 
“Today we add a fourth important strategic pillar – that of community. Embedded within our local communities, forged by Texas and embracing our global presence, Texas A&M University is committed to enriching the learning and working environment for all visitors, students, faculty and staff.
 
“Be it faculty working with students, researchers in the field, service projects in Bryan/College Station or around the globe, the Aggie citizen is a citizen of substance, forever demonstrating a willingness to help humanity, with an abiding commitment to the success of each other.”
