On the second day of her fifth work week as president of A&M-San Antonio, Matson presented on top funding priorities before the Senate Committee on Finance in Austin last week. The university is requesting over $70 million for a science and technology building from the 84th Texas Legislative session (see more on Legislative funding requests).
As part of her five-minute testimony, Matson remarked on the university’s financial priorities: “Like my colleagues, you’ve heard about administrative cost efficiencies. Although we’re small, we’ve reduced approximately $653,000 in positions, and redirected those funds to instruction and student success.”
Texas A&M University System Board of Regents confirmed Dr. Cynthia Teniente-Matson on Feb. 12 as the university’s second president.
To hear President Matson’s testimony on behalf of Texas A&M University-San Antonio, advance to 48:30-57:30.
