How Horned Frogs are taking the lead on making a difference

In 2017, the university revealed the results of an exhaustive research process to explore how Horned Frogs think about, talk about, experience and represent TCU. The results supported the sentiment that TCU places its highest value on people and building relationships, fostering a community where its members are supported, challenged and encouraged to be their best.

Lead On, the platform for us to highlight what we do, how we do it and why it matters, provides a powerful opportunity for us to align our brand work, our strategic planning and our fundraising campaign planning.

The Brand

Our brand articulates who we are, what we stand for and how we make a unique difference in the world. That means each of us, every day, with every interaction, is creating the environment and the experiences that exemplify who TCU is.

New documentaries featuring staff and students encompass topics such as leadership, bridging cultural differences, and balancing work, school and family, as well as getting involved to make the most of your collegiate experience. A robust marketing and communications campaign includes documentaries to enhance brand awareness and extend TCU’s academic reputation beyond campus borders. Learn more at

The Plan

Our strategic plan, Vision in Action: Lead On, shapes operational actions in pursuit of our vision for the future, and we are forging ahead with plans that will fuel the leaders who, tomorrow, will shape and transform our world.

The passion that permeates TCU—that sense of spirited belonging that fuels our community to be better, achieve more and have an impact for the greater good—ensures that we will continue to progress in realizing our goals to strengthen academic profile and reputation, endowment, TCU experience and campus culture, and workforce for our employees and our graduates.

The Fuel

A comprehensive fundraising campaign—scheduled to launch publicly in fall 2019— will help us achieve our goals through philanthropic investments that will fuel our people and programs and strengthen our endowment. Lead On: A Campaign for TCU envisions the next steps that will build upon our many achievements and propel the university toward greater distinction.

There are so many stories—human stories—that offer insight into the impact of the TCU experience upon those who have crossed this campus. We will tell these stories to inspire, to encourage and to illustrate the power of a university that continually strives to shape individuals who have the capacity and conscience to make a positive and sustainable difference in the world.

Strong brands don’t happen by accident. They require focus, fuel and a coordinated effort—an effort like the one underway at TCU. Lead On!
