Dr. Emily Cutrer Profile Picture

It is an honor and pleasure to serve as the president of Texas A&M University-Texarkana, a university known for its commitment to academic excellence and student success! 

 A&M-Texarkana has served the higher education needs of our region since 1971 and been a proud member of The Texas A&M University System since 1996. We have had a great past and are looking forward to an even stronger future.  Thanks to the vision and hard work of our faculty, staff, and community supporters, we have embarked on a new era at our lovely Bringle Lake campus.  We are transforming an already fine institution into a truly comprehensive university, one that offers a wide array of degree programs, student activities, and residential facilities. 

While we are providing opportunities associated with large universities, we have also held fast to our small campus feel.  Indeed, students here are known in the classroom by their names, not their ID numbers. Our small class sizes encourage interaction among students and faculty, and our staff are dedicated to meeting students’ individual needs.  This emphasis on student engagement, both inside and outside the classroom is a hallmark of the A&M Texarkana experience and one that makes this a very special place to earn your college degree.

All of us on campus are here to help you achieve your educational goals and are proud that you’ve joined the Eagle Family as it soars to even greater heights.
