The Texas A&M campus culture hinges upon the work, innovative teaching, groundbreaking research and impactful service of our faculty. 

When our faculty members are recognized for their excellent work and impact, it elevates the university and the faculty member, positioning them for success and to communicate their impact beyond campus. The award amplification program was established to make a tangible impact on faculty retention and engagement, and encourage faculty to seek prominent roles as leaders within their areas of expertise.
