Texas A&M is committed to the idea of human capital by highlighting faculty in its Vision 2020 strategic plan. A&M reinforced this commitment with the faculty reinvestment program, which called for hiring 447 faculty members during a five-year period. The university achieved this goal on time. When A&M works to recruit, support and retain internationally recognized faculty, it expands the possibilities for faculty and students, preparing Aggies to make even greater contributions to the world.
"Faculty Impact" means your gift will benefit Texas A&M faculty through a faculty chair, professorship, fellowship or any other donation that directly affects faculty.
When you invest in our faculty, you're giving A&M an academic edge. Top-notch faculty members attract not only other superb professors but also superb students. Because state funds cover only basic faculty requirements, private support is more critical than ever. Invest in the potential of one faculty member and you affect the lives of hundreds of students.
The Choice Is Yours
You can choose to support a particular faculty member with a pass-through gift to a now account, but most donors elect to make a gift that will last in perpetuity. An endowed gift assists faculty and students forever, because the Foundation will distribute only the earnings on your investment.
