Academics and research

A Tradition of Sustainability Programs

Sustainability in Academics and Research at Texas A&M University-Kingsville has a long history. In each of the five Colleges aspects of sustainability are integral to academic pursuits, both in the curriculum and faculty research. At this critical moment in the history of the world TAMUK is proud of the important work being done in sustainability, while embracing future innovative research and courses of study.

Upcoming Academic Credentials

The Office of the Provost endorsed an initiative to make academic credentials available to students in the area of sustainability. These credentials will enhance a student’s major area of study, boosting their job competitiveness. It demonstrates to a future employer the graduate’s awareness of contemporary issues surrounding their chosen career path. For students in fields of study that are not overtly allied to aspects of sustainability, these credentials can broaden their understanding of issues relevant to every citizen of the world.

It is expected that a Credential will be made available to students in the fall of 2014.
