Graduate and Professional Studies Data
The Graduate and Professional School generates and collects data from a variety of external and internal sources for analysis and reporting. We use data to inform best practices, highlight successes, and identify areas where improvement is needed in graduate and professional student efforts and support.
Graduate and Professional Demographics and Student Success
Texas A&M University is committed to accountability in its pursuit of excellence. The university expects to be held to the highest standards in its use of resources and in the quality of the educational experience. In fact, this commitment is a part of the fabric of the institution from its founding and is a key component of its mission statement (as approved by the Board of Regents and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board), its aspirations found in Vision 2020 (approved by the Board of Regents in 1999), and its current strategic plan, Decade of Excellence Strategic Plan 2020-2025.
Transparency enhances the success of graduate and professional education by enabling university entities to see data on demographics, degree completion, time to degree, degrees awarded, and admissions in order to evaluate areas of achievement and areas where improvement is needed.
