No longer are nurses tied to bedside care. Nurses play a vital role in the overall health and wellness of communities, especially those patients who that have limited access to primary care providers. Serving urban, rural and underserved populations, Aggie nurses take health care to the patient.

Texas A&M University has named Brigadier General Patrick R. Michaelis as the next Commandant of the Corps of Cadets.

The 1993 Aggie graduate starts his new role on Oct. 1, after retiring from his current post as Commanding General, U.S. Army Training Center & Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

Michaelis is a Distinguished Military Graduate of Texas A&M who earned his bachelor’s degree in history in 1993 and commissioned into the Army as a Second Lieutenant of Armor.

“We are at an important inflection point for the Corps of Cadets and I am committed to growing this incredible leadership training program for our students,” said Texas A&M President M. Katherine Banks. “General Michaelis, an outstanding former student who has distinguished himself through a decorated military career, is the right leader at the right time for Texas A&M and the Corps. I look forward to great things under his capable leadership.”

Michaelis has previously served in command roles at Fort Hood, Texas; Fort Lewis, Wash.; and Redstone Arsenal, Ala.  Among his many posts, he was the Deputy Commanding General (Operations) for the U.S. Army Recruiting command at Fort Knox; Deputy Commanding Officer (Maneuver) for the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley; the Executive Officer to the Under Secretary of the Army and Chief of Staff to the Commander of the Combined Joint Forces Land Component Command in Iraq for Operation Inherent Resolve. He also commanded operations in Kandahar City, Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom, and served in leadership roles in Operations Iraqi Freedom II and Iraqi Freedom 06-08.

Michaelis said he’s “humbled and honored” to be selected to serve as Commandant.

“I want to thank President Banks and Vice President Ramirez for the opportunity to once again be a part of this great institution,” Michaelis said. “I first stepped onto the Quad in August of 1989. The leadership experience, the camaraderie, the commitment to academics, and the traditions that defined my Corps experience shaped the character of the person I am today.”

Brigadier General Patrick R. Michaelis will become the Corps' 46th commandant, overseeing the university's uniformed student body.
