About Dual Career

Our program aims to maintain and strengthen the university's ability to recruit and retain excellent faculty by focusing on their quality of life as members of the Aggieland community. When faculty join Texas A&M University, they are often accompanied by partners (and/or family members) that are essential to the work-life balance of the faculty member. By prioritizing the professional pursuits and development of the partners of our faculty, the Dual Career program seeks to emphasize the value of these individuals to the Texas A&M community while aiding in their successful acclimation to the broader Bryan-College Station community.
