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

Developing a faculty-focused awards and recognition strategy provides Faculty Affairs the opportunity to position Texas A&M faculty for success and communicate their impact well beyond campus. Establishing a dynamic set of resources to support award achievement will make a tangible impact on faculty retention and engagement rates, inspire increased faculty recognition within their disciplines and encourage faculty to seek more prominent roles as thought-leaders within their areas of expertise.
