Texas State University System

Graduates Making a Difference

Our institutions offer students the knowledge, skills and inspiration needed to excel in their chosen field. That's one reason why our graduates are making a difference in Texas and around the world. Panama Canal Authority CEO Jorge Quijano, a graduate of Lamar University, is overseeing the $5.25 billion expansion of the world's leading interoceanic waterway.

New President

Dr. Bill Kibler, formerly vice president for student affairs at Mississippi State University, has been confirmed as the next president of Sul Ross State University. Kibler says Sul Ross' relatively small enrollment makes it easier to interact with students and directly impact their lives.
