The Path Forward

Forty-one working groups are at various stages of researching and discussing how best to implement dozens of recommendations approved by Texas A&M President M. Katherine Banks in the Path Forward, her ambitious and strategic plan that provides guidance for carrying out the university’s mission and vision.

The plan, which was created after months of surveys, interviews and research, is a continuation of the Vision 2020 roadmap created by Aggie leaders in the late 1990s.

President Banks announced 41 recommendations based on the report in December, emphasizing her commitment to helping Texas A&M advance its academic mission by providing the highest quality of undergraduate and graduate programs while developing new understandings through research and creativity.

The 19-member Strategic Implementation Committee, appointed by President Banks, is overseeing the working groups. The outcome of much of the work is expected to be implemented by the Fall after results are presented to Banks.
