This year’s Annual Report, dubbed “Reset. Restart. Renew.,” shares the University’s “reset” as TAMIU and the world began a transition to a post-Pandemic world through continued commitment and resilience, said TAMIU president Dr. Pablo Arenaz.

“2022 was yet another year of unparalleled challenges.  As we began our reset to renew the University’s commitment to our students, we tapped into the remarkable resilience of our students, faculty, staff and alumni to make this possible.  Together, we reaffirmed our student-focused mission, launched new programs, research and outreach, earned national accolades, graduated our largest classes, and extended our 53-year legacy.  It’s brought us all closer together and helped us to sustain our commitment to being accessible, affordable and exceptional,” Dr. Arenaz observed.

The Annual Report looks at the past year of student, faculty, alumni, staff, and community accomplishments, while sharing the kindness and generosity of the University’s donors and partners.

Among Report highlights offer a look at University’s economic impact on Webb County, TAMIU’s milestone +1 million social media followers, the passing of University leadership titans Dr. Billy F. Cowart and Dr. Rex Ball, and expanded partnerships with UTHealth Houston, the City of Laredo and Laredo Independent School District, among others.

Also included is information on new research grants at the University from the National Science Foundation and U.S. Department of Education, faculty publications, and a profile on the exuberant retrospective exhibit of late Laredo artist Julie Shaifer Watson.  Featured student accomplishments include dedicated student engagement and outreach efforts aimed at beautifying Laredo, advancing literacy, and helping to challenge and reduce prejudice and stereotyping.

Alumni profiles, reports on donor-driven support, and an insightful infographic round out the publication produced by the University’s Office of Public Relations, Marketing and Information Services.

TAMIU’s traditional print Annual Report edition has included a digital sister publication since 2012.  The online version offers the look and feel of the print version, complete with pages that “flip” and are responsive across devices. It also features hyperlinks to expanded content, including galleries, web resources and videos.
