The following letter was sent to Texas A&M University-San Antonio community members on Feb. 9, 2017.
Dear Members of the A&M University-San Antonio Community:
Provost Mike O’Brien, VP Bill Spindle, and I represented Texas A&M University-San Antonio at the Texas A&M University System’s Board of Regents meeting in College Station this week. I am pleased to report that the Regents approved our proposed agenda items, including appropriation of $56,700,000 for construction services and related project costs of the new Science and Technology Building. Construction will begin February 21 with an anticipated opening date of fall 2018. Project details and a date for the groundbreaking ceremony are forthcoming.
I hope you will join me in celebrating this milestone for A&M-San Antonio, which greatly enhances our strategic plan as we continue working toward becoming a National Model for Student and Academic Success.
I thank the Board of Regents and Chancellor Sharp as they continue to be proud supporters of A&M-San Antonio and the community we serve. I also extend my gratitude to our Jaguar family for your unwavering support and vigor as we journey further along our pathway.
Dr. Cynthia Teniente-Matson
