Thrive 2025

Thrive 2025 – Strategic Planning Summit
January 16, 2020 from 12:30 – 4:30 pm
January 17, 2020 from 8:30 am – 12:30 pm.


The College of Liberal Arts is dedicated to being inclusive and welcoming new ideas. This ideal means the future of liberal arts at Texas A&M University depends on you. 

Should we strive to rank among the top liberal arts colleges? Are other public research universities our benchmarks? Does our future include taking more students abroad or providing high quality online education? Encouraging faculty research, scholarship, and creative activity? What makes the College of Liberal Arts unique, and how do we incorporate that into our future? We won’t know the answers to these questions unless we hear from you.

You have a rare opportunity to become part of history. We want to hear from graduate students, undergraduate students, former students, faculty, staff, donors, and liberal arts admirers alike. By voicing your opinions about the College of Liberal Arts, you can help shape our future. 

Take our short survey by clicking the link below. Attend one of our two highly interactive summits on January 16 or 17, 2020, where your voice will be both heard and understood. Contact one of the Strategic Planning Steering Committee Members. Most importantly, make your mark on the College of Liberal Arts. Let your voice be heard!
