Inauguration Festivities Continue with the Unveiling of Momentum 2015 at State of the University Luncheon

The 10 year plan will shape the University’s growth and development 

As part of Presidential Inauguration festivities at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi this week, President Flavius Killebrew will introduce Momentum 2015 during the State of the University Luncheon on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 11:30 a.m. at the American Bank Center Ballroom.

Momentum 2015 is a strategic course of action that will shape the University through the next 10 years. The plan was led by a 21-member steering committee from the campus and the community that designed University goals through 2015. The new planning process will supplant the University’s previous master plan, which was followed from 1990 to 2001 and then amended yearly.

Proceeds from the luncheon will go toward the University’s Achieve Partnership Scholarship Program.
