Caring Campus Comes to Texas A&M University – Kingsville

The Institute for Evidence-Based Change (IEBC) is expanding our reach to establish a culture of care on campuses nationwide by welcoming our first university, Texas A&M University – Kingsville (TAMUK), to the Caring Campus community.

Our seasoned Caring Campus coaches will train TAMUK professional staff on the fundamentals of how to increase student connectedness to their university and help them develop plans and behavioral commitments to implement campus-wide.

“Our ‘north star’ at TAMUK is student success, and Caring Campus will help to ensure every aspect of our behaviors and attitudes align with this mission,” TAMUK President Dr. Robert Vela said.

Dr. Vela said he is looking forward to implementing Caring Campus at TAMUK to help establish a framework that serves all students and meets them where they are, ensuring they feel welcome at the university.

“We are honored to welcome TAMUK as our first Caring Campus university, and we can’t wait to see how the program will help them transform their campus culture,” IEBC President/CEO Brad Phillips said.

Caring Campus helps colleges and universities transform their campus culture into one where students feel a sense of belonging and connectedness, ensuring every student has the opportunities, resources, and support to achieve their goals.
