TAMIU president Ray Keck said the rankings are indicative of the University fulfilling its service mission.

“TAMIU’s mission is all about providing accessible, affordable higher education.  That mission has not changed in over 35 years of service and we are gratified to see that our rankings reflect delivery of that service.  We are proud to prepare all students, particularly Hispanics, to become our future leaders and decision-brokers.  By serving them, we serve the future we all share. We look forward to the day when we are included in the ranking of doctoral programs as our doctoral students begin graduating,” he said.

He expressed his thanks to the University community for its steadfast support in making the rankings possible.

“Our entire University community:  students, faculty and staff, make this possible.  Every day, they work hard to make dreams come true.  These rankings attest to their shared commitment,” he noted.
