Campaign Priorities

The NEXT IS NOW Capital Campaign is comprised of four priorities, all designed to advance Texas State University to achieve Tier One research university status: Students, Academics, Facilities, and Athletics.

Students NEXT is Each Promising Student

Students are our top priority, so we're fundraising for more undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, student enrichment programs and support services.
