Posted on

KINGSVILLE (October 20, 2021) — Texas A&M University-Kingsville will be receiving $45 million in funding from the Texas legislature’s SB52 that will help provide support for critical campus renovations. The University will also receive funding from SB8, the COVID-related appropriations bill to enhance the quality of education for at-risk students.  

 

Chancellor John Sharp thanked Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Speaker Dade Phelan, Sen. Brandon Creighton, Sen. Jane Nelson and Rep. Greg Bonnen for their leadership and all of the members of the House and Senate who supported the legislation.

 

“We are gratified by the confidence the Legislature shows in The Texas A&M System to be good stewards of tax dollars,” Sharp said. “We will continue to earn that trust as we serve the students and citizens of this great state.”

 

“I am deeply appreciative of the support from the Texas legislature and, in particular, our local delegation, including State Senator Eddie Lucio Jr. and State Representative J.M. Lozano,” said Texas A&M University-Kingsville President Dr. Mark A. Hussey. “We are addressing critical deferred maintenance projects as part of our campus master plan and the funding provided through SB 52 will support that effort. Additionally, we are grateful for the additional funds to help us provide additional support to foster student success among our most at-risk students. This is at the heart of our mission.”
