About the University

Texas A&M University-Central Texas (A&M-Central Texas) was established in 2009 as an upper-level undergraduate and graduate institution within the Texas A&M University System. In 2010, the U.S. Army donated 600+ acres of land for our campus. Our third major building opened this spring.

A&M-Central Texas is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and COBA is currently ACSBP accredited. COBA is also presently pursuing AACSB accreditation and the initial Self Evaluation Report (iSER) was accepted in April of 2019.

A&M-Central Texas is located on the southern edge of Killeen, TX, a city of about 120,000 (not including the 50,000+ on Fort Hood, which is the largest Army installation in the world). Killeen is about an hour north of Austin, and just a few miles west of the I-35 corridor, which is one of the fastest trans-metropolitan regions in North America. The area is known for a low cost of living, friendly people, and the ability to choose one’s living lifestyle due to the diversity of the area and ease of travel (mile a minute on average).

The student body is one of the most diverse in the state and COBA students generally classify as non-traditional, with an average age of about 33 years. However, that has been trending downward recently. A significant portion of the student population is military affiliated (active duty, spouse, veteran and other dependents). Because of the strong ties to serving military personnel around the world, many courses are offered online, in addition to the traditional day and evening face to face courses.

Faculty members would first and foremost be expected to provide excellent instruction and support other aspects of the college and university mission as appropriate. Teaching at a young, growing institution can be a lot of work, but it's also a unique opportunity to be able to put your fingerprint on an institution that is changing lives daily, and hopefully for many years to come.

All positions are security-sensitive. Applicants are subject to a criminal history investigation, and employment is contingent upon the institution’s verification of credentials and/or other information required by the institution’s procedures, including the completion of the criminal history check.
