In furtherance of its mission as an institution of higher education, TAMUCC is committed to preparing graduates for lifelong learning and responsible citizenship in the global community and also to excellence in teaching, research, creative activity and service. In addition, TAMUCC is committed to compliance with applicable export control regulations while promoting academic freedom.
