To the Aggie Family:
It is an honor and privilege to have this opportunity to serve as interim president of Texas A&M University. As a former student and a faculty member, both here and in Galveston, as well as CEO of our Galveston campus, I have an abiding love for Texas A&M and a keen awareness of its rich history and countless contributions in the areas of teaching, research and service. I pledge to the Aggie Family that this transition to a new interim administration will be as seamless and efficient as possible, and that I will continue to promote our core values as well as our status as one of the top teaching and research universities in the nation. I look forward to working alongside each of you as we continue to enhance and advance our great university.
Over the days and weeks ahead, I will be meeting with faculty, students, staff, former students and other stakeholders to seek their perspectives about the important issues facing our university as we move forward. I welcome the opportunity to meet personally with as many of you as possible. Even with our recent challenges, please be assured that we will not waver from our firm commitment to the citizens of our state, nation and world. Thank you for your continued dedication and commitment to Texas A&M University.
Dr. R. Bowen Loftin
