Texas A&M University will address the demand for teachers in Texas with the help of a $3 million Hispanic-Serving Institution capacity-building grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

Through the five-year grant, the School of Education and Human Development (SEHD) will lead the development and assessment of a pilot program to recruit, mentor and retain students who want to major in education or human resource development.

During the pilot, SEHD will provide its expertise in academic coaching, advising and essential services as well as partner with academic units and divisions across the campus, including student affairs, admissions, undergraduate recruitment and outreach.

The federal grant is the first Texas A&M has won since being designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) in 2022 and furthers the university’s commitment to serve all students across Texas including A&M’s Higher Education Center in McAllen.

The partnerships across Texas A&M will allow for the creation of best practices for student recruitment, retention and development that can be quickly adopted and benefit the entire campus, according to this press release.
