    Weeks after a major drug bust at Texas Christian University, school officials set new goals to boost the university's reputation.

    Most of the university's goals fall under three specific areas of focus: academic profile and reputation, size and balance, and campus environment.

    Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. said the strategic plan, "Vision in Action," has been successful over the past six years, but there is still room for improvement. TCU officials released a statement laying out their future plan.

    In the statement, the board voted to maintain the university's 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio. It also plans to invest in personnel program expansion, support, services and facilities.

    In relation to size and balance, board members set a target enrollment ceiling at 10,000 students -- 8,500 spaces reserved for undergraduates, with the remaining 1,500 spaces reserved for graduate students.

    Additionally, the board agreed upon a balance of Texas representation with out-of-state students. It agreed 60 percent of undergraduates should come from Texas while the remaining 40 percent of undergraduate students should come from outside the state.

    To improve the campus environment, the board decided to more efficiently use classroom space and provide housing options for every undergraduate.
