to the World
The WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World Generational Plan looks forward a few decades, rather than a few years. We are setting the target high: By 2035, when WT reaches its 125th anniversary, we will have attained doctoral status in the Carnegie classifications of universities with a powerfully distinctive mission.
“West Texas A&M University has been committed to understanding the aspirations of the young people of this region for more than a century. Their hopes and dreams have always been an important part of our role as a regional university, and we will continue to meet those needs through academic purpose and service for the next 100 years. WT 125 is essentially a plan to do just that—create a future for West Texas A&M University that is responsive to the needs of the students, faculty and staff, the Panhandle and the world.”
—Walter V. Wendler
From the Panhandle
to the World
is a carefully conceived vision for the future of West Texas A&M University.
WT 125 Scholarship Endowment
The scholarship is an investment in students from the top 26 counties of the Panhandle who desire to focus their study and career on the aspirations and needs of the citizens that the University serves and who possess a spirit of self-reliance, courage, resourcefulness and a desire to be part of something larger than themselves.
