Long-Term Investments

The state receives countless benefits from the Aggie graduates, faculty, and partners who help Texas remain competitive.

In addition, faculty-researchers at Texas A&M University and The A&M System’s agencies help leverage more than $892.7 million in research expenditures (FY16) — paving the way for projects that attract industry partners who bring jobs for Texas A&M graduates and the citizens of Texas.

The University’s standing today — as one of the largest research universities in America, with world-class recognition in disciplines ranging from agriculture to zoology — is testament to more than 125 years of visionary planning and strategic investment.
