A Note from President Rudin

Dear Lion Community,

I am pleased to present the long-awaited Nursing and Health Sciences Building on the campus of Texas A&M University-Commerce!

This beautiful facility will enable us to meet the growing healthcare needs in East Texas and beyond. Here, future healthcare leaders will learn life-saving skills in our Clinical Learning Center, and faculty will conduct leading healthcare research in our state-of-the-art laboratories.

The building's open-concept design places education on display and promotes a collaborative learning experience. Students will engage with peers using interactive elements, like writable whiteboard walls and tables, technology for connected group work sessions, and Active Learning Environment classrooms designed for high-impact education.

The clear glass exterior reminds us that our work doesn't end here. A&M-Commerce is not only committed to caring for our community, but also our state, nation and world. We are ready to partner with outside industries, healthcare providers and school systems to expand training programs, innovative research and community outreach.

A bright future lies ahead for A&M-Commerce. With our new Nursing and Health Science Building, we can ensure that A&M-Commerce will continue to produce leading educators and healthcare workers in the state of Texas.

Please stop by and tour the facility the next time you're on campus. You will be amazed!

Go Lions!
