The legislative clock ran out on the Tuition Revenue Bonds that universities in Texas had been counting on to fund new academic buildings - for the first time since 2006. But then, there are always special sessions.
On the June episode of The President's Perspective, Dr. Jones talks with Jerrod Knight about the overall positives that came from this state legislative session, as well as why higher education remains optimisic about TRB's, whose green light from the house and senate could mean a new $45M library for A&M-Commerce.
Later in the same episode, Dr. Jones discusses the grand mix of humanity that is the student body at Texas A&M University-Commerce, and the many ways in which the institution makes a point of fitting into the lives of its clientele. For instance, did you know that the average age student at TAMUC is 29 years?
The President's Perspective is a monthly half-hour chat with the president and CEO of Texas A&M University-Commerce, Dr. Dan Jones.
