FOUNDATION PRESIDENT PROFILE: PHILIP C. SKROBARCZYK As president of the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Foundation, Philip C. Skrobarczyk, owner of Fulton*Coastcon General Contractors, has taken a hands-on leadership approach to providing scholarship dollars, which are critical to attracting top students to the Island University. While he believes the University is unique due to its location on its own island, he also knows it is unique in its approach to higher education. This knowledge is what drives Skrobarczyk, who says, “at the Island University, students are afforded the opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on experience in research and creative activity because of a highly effective 23 to1 student-to-faculty ratio.”

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi

The prestige of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi is known worldwide. It boasts such accolades as being one of only six federally designated test sites for unmanned promote the growth, quality and aircraft systems (UAS) in the nation, through the Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence and Innovation. It is effectiveness of the University. also home to the Harte Research Institute, which is dedicated to advancing the long-term sustainable use and conservation of the Gulf of Mexico. The University was also recognized as a Minority Serving Institution for closing educational gaps and offering a top-notch education to many first-generation college students.

Foundation’s mission is to

The University’s explosive growth impacts not only the Corpus Christi community but extends well into the Coastal Bend, the state and globally, and that fact is not lost on Skrobarczyk. He has donated funds to the University both personally and through his company. Skrobarczyk has established an endowed scholarship in engineering, contributes to the Islander Athletic Fund, the Parents’ Council, the President’s Council and is a member of the Achieve Partnership. Physically, Fulton*Coastcon also leaves a lasting impression on the University, as it leads the construction project of Tidal Hall, the new life sciences and engineering building. Mirroring Skrobarczyk’s personal values, the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Foundation’s mission is to promote the growth, quality and effectiveness of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. The Foundation now manages a portfolio of more than $40 million. These funds have allowed for significant contributions to the development of the Corpus Christi campus—funding scholarships, scientific research, chairs and professorships, construction projects and improvements in classroom technology.

CORPUS CHRISTI TYPE A FUNDS MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR ISLAND UNIVERSITY Over the years, the City of Corpus Christi has proven the importance of our mutual relationship by investing time and resources towards the Island University’s growth, with the most recent investment coming in the form of $2 million in Type A funds. The funds, which were approved in early September, will be used to pursue a Bachelor of Science in both Civil and Industrial Engineering. The University is currently seeking approval from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board for both programs. Most of the new Type A funds will provide students with stateof-the-art lab equipment which will create the backbone for a civil engineering program. The rest of the funds will be used to purchase cutting-edge modeling software. Dr. L.D. Chen, Associate Dean for Research and Director of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences at Texas A&M UniversityCorpus Christi, explains that civil and industrial engineering are the missing foundational engineering pieces to the University’s degree offerings, which already include mechanical and electrical engineering. All four engineering degrees are interrelated and interconnected, meaning a student must know how each discipline works together.

Type A funds will ensure students in each of the concentrations will gain knowledge and opportunity for practical application.

“We are committed to our students’ success,” said Chen. “It is very important that our students do more than learn the material, they must learn how to collaborate with each other. For example, a mechanical engineer can build a drone, but the electrical engineer powers it.” The benefits of each engineering degree are plentiful. Type A funds will ensure students in each of the concentrations will gain knowledge and opportunity for practical application. Type A funds, which are generated from a Business and Job Development Fund sales tax, are designed to produce a skilled and educated workforce who can positively impact the Coastal Bend economy. Since 2009, the University has received $5.1 million in Type A funds to support the expansion of a mechanical and electrical engineering degree while also completing much-needed updates to research labs. The Type A funds also assisted in the purchase of the Coastal Bend Business Innovation Center. The Business Innovation Center is also home to the Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence & Innovation at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. The center is one of only six centers in the nation to be recognized by the FAA.

ISLANDER STUDENT LEADS INITIATIVE TO ADD ISLAND UNIVERSITY TO ‘LAS BOTAS DE MERCEDES’ COLLECTION Katarina Chapa, a junior biomedical science major, has learned that hard work and taking chances can lead to unexpected success. Chapa says her time at the Island University has expanded her potential in endless ways. Along with being accepted into Sigma Alpha Pi, the local chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success, she also spearheaded a fundraising campaign to add Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi to the “Las Botas de Mercedes” boot sculpture collection in Mercedes, Texas. Unveiled to the public in a formal ceremony in October, the statue is located in front of the Hector P. Garcia Memorial Library in Mercedes, which is located about 150 miles south of Corpus Christi, in the Rio Grande Valley.

Chapa says her time at the Island

The Island University’s boot is the 31st sculpture representing the likeness to a college or university to grace the streets of Mercedes.

To raise the necessary funds, Chapa worked with Texas A&M UniversityCorpus Christi officials and set up a GoFundMe account that received $950 in donations. Dr. Trent Hill, Vice President for Institutional Advancement at the Island University, matched the donated money, and together with $500 in donations from Mercedes officials, the $2,400 needed for the boot was raised. “Las Botas de Mercedes” are a part of a special tradition in Mercedes in which high school graduates take a photo standing near the boot that represents their future college. Chapa, who grew up in the city of Weslaco, but went to high school in Mercedes, came to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi after touring many colleges. “None of the other universities had the same feeling as A&M-Corpus Christi,” said Chapa. “They were all either too big or too small. The Island University had everything I wanted. Everyone here was so kind and welcoming, and as soon as I got here, I knew it was the college for me.” After graduation, Chapa plans to attend medical school at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

CONHS Orientation Welcomes First Class of DNP Students to the Island University

The College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CONHS) was pleased to welcome its newest graduate students during their graduate student orientation held on Aug. 20, which also included the first cohort of students entering the new Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program.

approved for the DNP program last year, I knew I had to sign up and be part of this first class.”

“The CONHS has been eagerly awaiting this day! We have worked very hard on this program and are excited to have such a strong group of students,” said Yolanda Keys, Graduate Department Chair and DNP Coordinator. “The potential for these nurses to improve the health of South Texas is what is driving all of us to have a strong DNP program.”

Amy Thornberry, another DNP student attending the orientation, felt similarly. “I knew this new program was coming,” she said. “I knew they had been working on it for a couple of years and I told myself, ‘I’m going to be in the first class.’”

The new program focuses on helping DNP students take existing research and put it into practice. This allows the Island University to assist in closing the almost ten-year lag that can exist from research appearing in an academic journal to its results in the patient care setting. Students at the orientation shared their excitement about being part of the first class for the new DNP program.

Throughout the orientation, students were introduced to the campus and many of its resources, such as Blackboard, the Mary and Jeff Bell Library and the CASA Writing Center. There were also presentations on graduate-level writing and distance learning strategies. Students also had the opportunity to have lunch with the nursing faculty, allowing them to become more familiar with their future professors. Such in–person meetings were especially meaningful because both the Master of Science in Nursing and DNP degrees are offered exclusively online.

“It feels awesome to be a part of this program,” said Ashley Hughes. “As soon as I heard that Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi had been

GROWTH Second Phase of Momentum Village Housing Helps Prepare for Enrollment Increase The Momentum Phase II construction is the latest addition to the University’s Momentum Campus. Momentum Campus includes the first phase of Momentum Village student housing, which opened in August 2015, the Dugan Family Soccer and Track Stadium, and the Thomas J. Henry Tennis Center and recreational sports fields. The Island University is preparing for continued increases in student enrollment. Enrollment has increased 21 percent in the past five years, including a 19 percent growth in freshmen and sophomores since 2011.

New ‘Tidal Hall’ to Offer Enhanced Research Opportunities For Students

With the addition of these new buildings, the Island University will have 2,832 total residential units for students.

Elected officials, along with community and campus leaders, attended the Sept. 6 groundbreaking ceremony of Tidal Hall, the new Life Science and Engineering building, which will be placed next to the Early Childhood Development Center near the first entrance to campus.

In April, the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents granted Past President Flavius Killebrew authority to negotiate and execute a lease for the second phase of housing.

The three-story building will support two of the Island University’s fastest-growing programs, life sciences and engineering. Tidal Hall will include six new instructional labs, 34 research labs, as well as faculty office space.

The new housing, which will feature townhome and apartment-style living, will offer 560 additional beds, bringing the total number of residents in the entire complex to 1,042 students. American Campus Communities is the developer for the $35 million project, which is scheduled for completion by fall 2017.

The new office space will allow the University to repurpose the space within the Engineering Building for expansion of electrical and mechanical engineering programs.

The University provides students living at Momentum Village with free shuttle service to the main campus throughout the day.

Approval for Tidal Hall came from the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents in September 2015. The Island University was appropriated $60,000,000 for the construction of the building. Anticipated completion of the project is July 2018. The name, announced at the State of the University Luncheon, was chosen through an online contest, which was open to Islander students, faculty, staff and alumni. Garrett Arnett, a sophomore environmental science major, submitted the winning name.

RESEARCH FUNDING A&M-Corpus Christi Partners with Scotland on Marine Research Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi researchers recently visited Scotland to take part in a Global Marine Sustainability Workshop. The three-day workshop was co-organized by the NSF-funded Research Coordination Network CE3SAR, the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies (HRI) and the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) at the University of Highlands and Islands (UHI). During the workshop, Dr. Luis Cifuentes, Vice President for Research, Commercialization and Outreach at the Island University and principal investigator of the NSF project and Professor Ian Bryden, Vice-Principal of Research at UHI, signed a statement of their institutions’ commitment to future collaboration. Like HRI, the mission of SAMS is to deliver world-class marine science that supports society with innovative solutions to developing a sustainable relationship with the marine environment.

Island University Uses Autonomous Underwater Vehicle to Research Red Tide

With similarities between SAMS and HRI, this collaboration could increase international research and study abroad opportunities for A&M-Corpus Christi students.

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi students and faculty are working to improve the health of the Gulf Coast by researching marine environments and their harmful algal blooms. Students of the Marine Biology and Coastal and Marine System Science programs are taking full advantage of an otherwise negative environmental event, red tide, and collecting samples using a high-tech research tool called the EcoMapper. The EcoMapper Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) is a torpedo-shaped system which scans the water to generate data. The EcoMapper can scale the surface of the water or it can travel depths and distances, and is programmed through satellite and geographical coordinates. Although the AUV was first introduced at the Island University as a tool to research water quality, campus researchers hope the EcoMapper can also assist with predicting the location and persistence of future red tide blooms.

SPEAKERS & VISITORS Visiting Artist, TAMU-CC Students Work Together to Create Immersive Sculptural Experience The biblical story of Jonah and the Whale was the inspiration for an art installation at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi held in fall 2016. The installation, titled “A Message for Ninevah,� was created by visiting artist Jason Hackenwerth, who is known internationally for his unique and inspiring art. The entire sculpture measured 60 feet long and 20 feet wide, taking up almost the entire space in the Weil Gallery. With a metaphorical form of a beached whale, the artist hoped to envoke notions of mortality, transcendence, and rebirth. Hackenwerth says he made the sculpture this large so that the viewer would be required to go inside the installation. In addition to Weil Gallery staff, a select group of Islander art student volunteers were recruited based on their skill level and experience working with installations to assist Hackenwerth in bringing the sculpture together.

Dr. Brian Greene Headlines Distinguished Speaker Series The theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, the universal law of gravity, string theory and the nature of time were just a few of the topics discussed in depth by Dr. Brian Greene, American theoretical physicist and string theorist, who headlined the fall 2016 Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Distinguished Speaker Series on Oct. 18 in the Performing Arts Center.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH Islander Student Collects Used Starbucks Coffee Grounds, Turns it into Valuable Campus Resource When life hands Melissa Zamora used coffee grounds, she does the obvious—she composts. Since September she has collected and composted more than 300 gallons of used coffee grounds that have been recycled into nutrient-rich soil for the Islander Gardens at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. Zamora, a senior environmental science major and president of the newly formed Islander Green Team, came up with the idea to collect used coffee grounds from the on-campus Starbucks during her Introduction to Environmental Science class. The soil, or as Zamora affectionately calls it, “black gold,” is packed with nutrients, and composting campus waste has many benefits.

Power On Conference Sparks Music Industry Conversation for Coastal Bend

Zamora continues to collect data on the project, which is currently in its first phase. With the expansion of the project, Zamora hopes to collect food waste from several areas on campus.

Power On Music, a conference featuring panel discussions from Texas music industry leaders and aimed at promoting the importance of the music industry in Texas, was held Oct. 19 in the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi University Center. Mathew Knowles, father of pop superstar Beyoncé and former manager of Destiny’s Child, was the event’s keynote speaker. Knowles is the president and CEO of MusicWorld Entertainment, a leading music and entertainment conglomerate with record sales exceeding 300 million worldwide. Other speakers included Grammy Award nominee El Dusty and popular Texas Country Music artist Jake Ward. Power On Music was organized by State Rep. Todd Hunter and co-hosted by the Governor’s Texas Music Office, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Del Mar College and the Corpus Christi Convention and Visitors Bureau.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

‘Sink Your Shucks’ Oyster Recycling Program Celebrates A Million Pounds of Shells Collected

The oyster recycling program, founded in 2009, was the first in Texas that reclaims oyster shells from restaurants and returns them to local waters, providing the base structures necessary to form new reefs and habitat for sea organisms. With the help of volunteers, “Sink Your Shucks” has restored about 14 acres of oyster reef.

“Sink Your Shucks,” managed by the Harte Research Institute (HRI) for Gulf of Mexico Studies and the College of Science and Engineering (COSE) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, celebrated its millionth pound of oyster shells rescued from the landfill to be repurposed as productive estuary habitat. To commemorate the occasion, “Sink Your Shucks” organizers, participants and HRI officials gathered at Groomer’s Seafood in Corpus Christi on Aug. 16, to dedicate a new trailer donated by the business to the recycling program.

History Students Create Virtual Tours That Provide Peek at Past And Present of Downtown Corpus Christi

a historical aspect of Corpus Christi that has been selected, researched and designed by graduate students.

Corpus Christi residents and visitors may not be aware of the city’s rich and vibrant history, but thanks to an app created by history graduate students at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, the public can experience history through the Corpus Christi Downtown Walking Tours.

Students used a hands-on approach to apply their research and have gained valuable experience in digital history. Since developing the tours last spring, Brown and her students have received positive feedback.

The idea for the Corpus Christi Downtown Walking Tours app was developed by Dr. Jen Brown, Assistant Professor of History, as a class assignment for graduate students in the history program. Each tour represents
