Angelo State University President Dr. Brian J. May and a team of ASU officials met with the Southwest Texas Junior College administrative cabinet on Aug. 5 to discuss ways to enhance the relationship between the two institutions.
Officials from the two institutions held a luncheon meeting in the Bluebonnet Room of the Matthews Student Center.
"Dr. May contacted me and set up the meeting to get input from our administrative team on any struggles we have encountered with our students wanting to transfer to Angelo State," SWTJC President Hector Gonzales said.
According to Gonzales, the discussion included talks about struggles SWTJC students have encountered in transferring to ASU, as well as the possibility of formalizing a Two-Plus-Two articulation agreement between SWTJC and ASU. The visiting officials also outlined a new Bachelor's of Applied Science degree program now available at ASU.
Historically, ASU, along with Sul Ross State University, Texas State and UTSA, is one of the top transfer destinations for SWTJC students.
Accompanying Dr. May on the visit to Uvalde were Dr. Javier Flores, ASU vice president of student affairs and enrollment management, and Dallas Swafford, ASU director of outreach and transfer services.
"It was a very productive meeting and we will continue to work with ASU and other four-year universities to better serve our students," Dr. Gonzales said.
