Update on Presidential Priorities, Commissions, Task Forces

message from txst president dr kelly damphousse

Dear Colleagues:

In my August 19 inaugural State of the University Address at Convocation, I put forward our top priorities and a shared vision for the future of Texas State University. With the help and support of many, we followed through as promised, and today I am writing to you to provide some important updates. Working closely with my Cabinet and senior leadership, we formed several commissions and task forces to address the opportunities and challenges ahead. The members, objectives, and expectations of these groups can be found on the Office of the President website.

I want you to know that the work of these bodies will be thorough and informed, but it will also be expedient. We have so many opportunities before us, and I am ready to work alongside you to elevate TXST and our students.

Moving forward, I will share updates on these initiatives in my monthly message, The Current. I’d like to thank the members of these commissions and task forces for their service and look forward to their innovative recommendations.

These last few months, I’ve witnessed firsthand how your dedication, work, and expertise continue to shape TXST into one of the nation’s top universities. Together, we’ll reach and even exceed our goals in these areas and more.



Kelly Damphousse, Ph.D.
