Next Is Now
Our Run2R1 and Elevating Student Success Is What's NEXT for Texas State University
Our Run to R1 and Student Success goals are driving the NEXT IS NOW campaign priorities:
- Provide more students entry to college and retention support from scholarships and student success enrichment resources.
- Fund construction and renovation of campus facilities, like the new music building to match the caliber of students and faculty we are recruiting.
- Strengthen our research capabilities and teaching support with increased Ph.D. graduates and post-docs to be designated as a national research university.
- Elevate our football program and renovate the Football Performance Center to enhance our overall student-athlete experience to put us on par with our peers in the State of Texas and nationally.
The NEXT IS NOW Capital Campaign was launched publicly in 2021 with the goal of raising $250 million. We've surpassed $233 million raised for the four campaign priorities: Students, Academics, Facilities, and Athletics. What's NEXT for TXST? Reaching Tier 1 research university status, powered by the NEXT IS NOW campaign.
