Welcome to the Office of the Chancellor

Serving the University, the Community and Every Horned Frog

Meet Chancellor Boschini

Greetings from the Chancellor 

TCU has always been about the people. It’s been that way since the beginning in 1873. Our founder, Addison Clark, observed that this is a school where students would be “taught how to study, would be given a purpose in life and a foundation on which to build character.”

TCU has grown from the original 13 students to nearly 11,000. We’ve become a major teaching and research institution, and our influence has moved beyond campus borders to Fort Worth, Texas, the nation and the world. But we are still characterized by mentoring relationships, caring teacher-scholars, challenging classes and close-knit community — we’re definitely a culture of connection.

Since the first time I stepped on this campus, I’ve known TCU is a special place. I hope you’ll feel the same way as you continue to explore and hopefully visit us in person.

Victor J. Boschini, Jr., Chancellor

Native American Land Acknowledgment

The Chancellor’s Cabinet approved the following Native American Land Acknowledgment, which was developed and approved by the TCU Native American Advisory Circle. We proudly recognize and honor the land on which we work and educate students to pursue the greater good.

As a university, we acknowledge the many benefits we have of being in this place. It is a space we share with all living beings, human and non-human. It is an ancient space where others have lived before us. The monument created jointly by TCU and the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes reminds us of our benefits, responsibilities, and relationships. We pause to reflect on its words:

This ancient land, for all our relations.

We respectfully acknowledge all Native American peoples who have lived on this land since time immemorial. TCU especially acknowledges and pays respect to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes, upon whose historical homeland our university is located.
