Focus on the Future

Where We're Headed

Texas A&M's journey to becoming a global leader in higher education has been fueled by strategic planning that consistently positions us ahead of the curve. Our current mission and strategic priorities look to continue our tradition of preparing leaders of character to meet the world's biggest challenges. That's how we build on our success and reach our brightest potential. One of our strategic priorities is to elevate graduate and professional education, because graduate and professional students, through their research, teaching, service, and commitment to academic and personal growth, are uniquely suited to play a vital role in helping Texas A&M fulfill our responsibilities as a public, land-, sea- and space-grant institution. The Graduate and Professional School is charged with leading that effort.

The College Committees on Graduate Instruction are responsible for making recommendations concerning graduate course offerings, general policies on graduate instruction and for other matters pertaining to graduate studies in each college. Members include Graduate Program Directors and the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies, who acts as Chair.
