Established as an independent member of the Texas A&M University System in 2009, A&M-Central Texas is a friendly and dynamic regional teaching institution that prides itself on excellence in instruction, but also embraces a growing emphasis on research.  A&M-Central Texas is truly unique in that it is an upper- and masters-level institution, offering only junior- and senior-level coursework needed to successfully complete baccalaureate degrees, and all coursework leading to the completion of masterâ™s degrees.  As such, A&M-Central Texas maintains active partnerships with the major community colleges within the Austin and Central Texas region, as well with Fort Hood, a premier outpost of the U.S. Army and one of the largest military installations in the world.  Our diverse student demographic includes a significant proportion of first-generation college students, non-traditional learners, and military-affiliated personnel. 

After many years of hard work, COBA recently achieved AACSB accreditation.  We are eager to have dynamic and collegial new faculty members partner with us in our strategic efforts within the College.  This is an exciting time of rapid change within the College that affords new faculty members many opportunities to make an immediate, significant, and lasting impact.

A&M-Central Texas is located on the southern edge of Killeen, TX, a city of approximately 150,000 located about halfway between Austin and Wacoâ”about 60 miles either way.  Our faculty members enjoy a wide variety of living options by virtue of the diversity in the areaâ”from quiet and rural to bustling and cosmopolitan.  It is an easy drive to great art, food, shopping, and night life as well as to hunting, fishing, hiking, and camping for those who prefer the outdoors.  Central Texas is also a great place to start and raise a family, and features light traffic and a reasonable cost of living.  The major metropolitan areas of Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, and San Antonio are all within a 3-hour radius of Killeen. 

Central Texas is a major logistics and distribution hub, located at the nexus of several major distribution thoroughfares (Interstates 35 and 14, BNSF and Union Pacific railways) and with several major corporations headquartered and/or with a significant operational presence within the region, including the BNSF Railway Corporation, the McLane Corporation, Performance Food Group, Pactiv, Wilsonart, Wal-Mart, HEB, and the US Army.  The region is experiencing rapid growth and development: the Killeen-Temple region was recently ranked as the 6th fastest-growing mid-size metropolitan areas in the US, and the Greater Austin region was listed as the #1 fastest-growing large metropolitan area in the US.
