Located 66 miles northeast of Dallas, Commerce, TX has been home to the institution now called Texas A&M University-Commerce since an 1894 fire forced its relocation from Cooper, TX. A&M-Commerce occupies a unique space straddling a line between an urban and a rural identity.

The Texas A&M University-Commerce 2019-2024 Strategic Plan lists, "Create an inclusive community characterized by respect and collaboration," as a strategic priority and goal. An ongoing Civility Initiative, headed by counseling professor Dr. LaVelle Hendricks, seeks to instill and confirm ideas about how university personnel might positively interact with one another and with students, families, and community members.

A&M-Commerce president Dr. Mark Rudin discusses this institutional priority on The President's Perspective.

Transcription follows:

To say that Texas A&M University-Commerce president Mark Rudin carries a flame for institutional research is a bit of an understatement. It's his passion, and it shows clearly in this conversation with KETR's Jerrod Knight. This episode of The President's Perspective is the second in an initial series on the subject of the 2019-2024 Strategic Plan for A&M-Commerce. The plan introduces five strategic priorities and goals, the second of which is a commitment to "Elevate Research."

In the fall of 2019, Texas A&M University-Commerce published its 2019-2024 Strategic Plan. At only six pages, this polished full-color document is notably succinct and deserves to have its finer points explored beyond what appears on the page.

This is The President's Perspective, a podcast with the purpose of sharing what's important and what matters to the president and CEO of Texas A&M University-Commerce, Dr. Mark Rudin.
