    What Is Work Burnout, And How Can We Avoid It?

    For human resource development professor Jia Wang, work burnout is bad for business. Burnout is a serious concern with major consequences for both employees and employers, she said, and part of the challenge is that organizations today are pressed with "doing more with less."

  • Texas A&M became a Space-Grant University in 1989 when NASA initiated the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, a national network of colleges and universities dedicated to expanding opportunities for Americans to participate in NASA projects.

    This means that Aggies at the faculty, student, staff and administrative levels “participate in NASA’s aeronautics and space projects by supporting and enhancing science and engineering education, research and public outreach efforts.”

Core 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

Texas A&M strives to be the home of opportunity by providing an affordable and accessible education for students and by putting research breakthroughs and successful careers well within reach for all.

With more than 125 undergraduate degree programs, 200 master's degree programs, 100 doctoral degree programs and 5 first professional degrees as options for study, Texas A&M is full of possibilities.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Texas A&M University (College Station, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Brief introductory call followed by an in-person interview with the direct manager and managers supervisor. Casual environment and nothing too high level in terms of IT questions. The 1:1 interview lasted roughly 30 minutes.
