The Islander Way

The mission of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Athletics is to develop and prepare student-athletes for lifelong success, guided by the principles of The Islander Way.

The Islander Way was developed as a mode of operation for students and staff at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. These 21 words outline the core values of the institution and serve as a code by which all Islanders strive to live and work.


“Islanders are prepared to achieve excellence through integrity and respect, devotion to team above self and loyalty to the Island University.”
