    Although you may question why you should wear a cloth face covering even when you’re not sick, remember that many COVID-19 patients didn’t realize they were ill and inadvertently exposed others to the virus.

  • It is time for a unified approach on how we address the representation of people who contributed to Texas A&M throughout our history and how we want to shape the expectations and behavior of our community to stand firmly against racism.

Our Values

 

Our purpose statement carries with it the responsibility, the traditions and the forward-thinking vision of Texas A&M, which is exemplified by all who are associated with the university — our faculty and staff, and our current and former students. This purpose can be defined by our six core values.

 

Excellence

 

Excellence stems from a great sense of pride in who we are and what we believe in. - Former Texas A&M President Dr. Robert Gates

 

There's an optimism, a faith in the future and an attitude that propels Aggies to take on the impossible — look at Red/White/Blue-Out. - Texas A&M leadership

We could do just about anything if we tried hard enough. - Former student

 

Integrity

 

The Aggie Code of Honor which Aggies recite by heart: 'Aggies do not lie, cheat or steal nor tolerate those that do' shows what goes to the heart of being an Aggie. - Texas A&M leadership

 

Integrity was the core value that A&M gave me more of than any other. It helped me succeed in my career because my fellow professionals, clients and friends knew that they could rely on me and my word. - Former student

 

Leadership

 

If you don't want to be a leader of character, don't come here. - Former Corps Commandant LTG John Van Alstyne

 

The spirit of leadership is instilled in every student — whether they go on to lead in the boardroom or in the backyard — they have the values, the confidence and the experience to lead change in their world. - Texas A&M leadership

 

Loyalty

 

Through unity, strength. - Texas A&M University Corps of Cadets Motto

 

I'm proud to be a part of a family that will always be there for me that's 48,000 members strong ... and that's not counting all those that came before or will come after. - Current Texas A&M student

 

Loyalty and respect for tradition is about a sense of belonging to something greater than yourself. You're a part of a history of traditions ... of a larger community. - Former Executive Vice President and Provost Dr. David Prior

 

Respect

 

A&M students aren't just joining a university, they're joining a lifelong family that understands the value of loyalty, camaraderie, and unconditional support. - Texas A&M leadership


A&M students embody a refreshing spirit: born of the values of friendliness, caring, support, confidence and a can-do attitude. - Former student

 

Selfless Service

 

If I had to tell you about Aggie values in one sentence I would simply ask the question: How can I be of service? - Current Texas A&M student

A&M encourages volunteerism, encourages being one of a thousand points of light, helping others ... and it comes naturally to Aggies. - Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush

Graduation

Texas A&M is the state's first public institution of higher education. With a student body of more than 68,000 and more than 5,200 acres on the College Station campus, Texas A&M is also among the nation's largest universities. Our origins, however, are much humbler: we owe our existence to the Morrill Act, approved by the United States Congress on July 2, 1862. This act provided for donation of public land to the states for the purpose of funding higher education whose "leading object shall be, without excluding other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and mechanic arts."

The State of Texas agreed to create a college under the terms of the Morrill Act in November 1866, but actual formation didn't come until the establishment of the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas by the Texas state legislature on April 17, 1871. A commission created to locate the institution accepted the offer of 2,416 acres of land from the citizens of Brazos County in 1871, and instruction began in 1876. Admission was limited to white males, and, as required by the Morrill Act, all students were required to participate in military training.

Texas A&M underwent many changes in the 1960s under the presidency of Gen. James Earl Rudder. Under his tenure the college diversified, opening its doors to African-Americans and formally admitting women. Participation in the Corps of Cadets was also made voluntary. In 1963, the Texas state legislature officially renamed the school to Texas A&M University, with the "A" and "M" being a symbolic link to the school's past but no longer officially standing for "Agricultural and Mechanical."

Since that time, Texas A&M has flourished to become one of the nation's premier research universities. Along with the University of Texas and Rice, Texas A&M is one of only three Tier 1 universities in the state. In 1971 and 1989, respectively, Texas A&M was designated as a sea-grant and a space-grant institution, making it among the first four universities to hold the triple distinction of land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant designations.

While membership in the Corps of Cadets became voluntary in 1965, the Corps has nonetheless continued to play a key role in the university. The Corps is often referred to as the "Keepers of the Spirit" and "Guardians of Tradition." Texas A&M remains one of only six senior military colleges, and the Corps of Cadets is the largest uniformed body outside the national service academies. As such, it has historically produced more officers than any other institution in the nation other than the academies.

The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened in 1997 on west campus, making Texas A&M one of only a few universities to host a presidential library on their campus. President Bush maintained an active role in the university, hosting and participating in special events organized through the library.
