Research That Matters
In 2015, Texas A&M University President Michael K. Young announced a goal to raise $4 billion by 2020 in the capital campaign, Lead by Example. The College of Liberal Arts epitomizes Lead by Example through our unparalleled commitment to first-generation students, international experience initiatives, innovative classroom instruction, welcoming workplaces and learning environments, and groundbreaking research.
Our college studies human beings. From neurons and ancient DNA, to novels and digital communication, our faculty and graduate student research increases our understanding of the human experience and adds to our knowledge of the world. Consistent with our research diversity, our faculty receive research funding from a variety of agencies and foundations including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Institutes for Health, the National Science Foundation, A. W. Mellon Foundation, and the Carnegie Corporation.
