  • Beginning in 2013, the Chancellor’s Research Initiative (CRI) has provided funds to Texas A&M University for the recruitment and hiring of faculty researchers who have established themselves in unique areas of academia capable of aiding Texas’ technological progress, helping create and enhance research capabilities and ensuring the highest quality of research and infrastructure development.
  • Through the Hagler Fellows program, the Hagler Institute for Advanced Study at Texas A&M University selects and recruits top scholars from around the world for visiting professorships and access to Texas A&M's research facilities.
