A Message from the President

The next chapter in South Texas College history is here and I am incredibly honored to be a part of it with you. This institution is nationally recognized as a leader in education, reputably progressive, and a beacon of advancement in our beautiful region. Achievements that make me delighted and inspired to be the newest member of the South Texas College family. 

In my new role as President, I plan to remain devoted to the South Texas College mission, the Rio Grande Valley communities it serves, and every single student that chooses our proud institution. There is no doubt the College’s staff and faculty are highly talented and fully committed to improving and innovating the tools needed to help students excel. Together, we will continue to build on the South Texas College legacy.
