The Anchor’s mission is to model and encourage active engagement in a students’ learning process through the demonstration and use of Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC) campus resources. Anchor Team members encourage students to incorporate knowledge and skills inside and outside the classroom into a meaningful educational pathway. Our Anchor Team members believe there are many paths for students to follow to achieve their goals. By providing personalized service in a supportive environment, the Anchor Team recognizes each student’s individual strengths and needs while empowering them to take ownership of their unique educational pathway. The Anchor Team members promote best practices based on professional research when working with students who are experiencing the Island campus for the first time and with those who are seeking a degree through University College. The Anchor team develops relationships with high school counselors, Texas A&M University (TAMU) employees, Del Mar College, the Corpus Christi community and Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi departments in an effort to provide our students the opportunity to make informed choices regarding their unique educational pathways.
