The Island University: A Vision for the Future

The Island University

Dynamic. Innovative. Distinguished. Influential.  Words defining a great university with a bold vision.  Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi has reached the next level on its pathway to excellence.

In its short history, this University has become a highly regarded institution vital to the Coastal Bend and to the future of young people throughout the state and nation.  Now, A&M-Corpus Christi is poised to foster a culture of excellence and engagement, while experiencing dynamic student growth reflecting the face of Texas.

Gonzaga, Butler, George Mason, and Virginia Commonwealth are the Division I models that have excelled at the highest level without football.   With a strong commitment from its administration, the resources to implement a plan, and a coaching staff with the experience necessary to execute that plan, Texas A & M University Corpus Christi is poised to explode on the national scene and beyond.

Exploring the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, performing on the finest stage in the Coastal Bend and undertaking new research to improve the lives of those in our community form the enriching experiences offered at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. We’re an active campus where our students, faculty and staff make all the difference.

Picture yourself in a tropical environment where top-notch academics and cutting-edge research are blended into a robust lifestyle. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi is the only University in the nation located on its own island.

With palm trees lining pathways throughout the 240–acre campus, nearby natural wetlands and a pristine beach, we’ve become a first-choice destination for many students seeking a university that takes the lead, rather than follows.
