Jerome H. Supple was the university's eighth president, serving 1989-2002. Supple was inaugurated February 28, 1990.
Supple’s main goal was the enhancement of Texas State’s quality and prestige, which he accomplished with the addition of the first Ph.D. programs, higher admission standards, improved student retention, and dramatic increases in external grants and private giving. He implemented the purchase of the 90-acre Aquarena Springs theme park property, led the university’s first major capital campaign, opened the Round Rock Higher Education Center and presided over the celebration of the university's centennial. During his tenure, several major facilities opened, including the library and student center. He also initiated a dialog regarding a name change. See Past Presidents webpage.
