The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents and Chancellor John Sharp announce an international search for a new President for Texas A&M University. The next President will provide visionary and strategic leadership to one of the largest universities in the country, and one which is also a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU).

Texas A&M opened its doors in 1876 as the state's first public institution of higher learning. Today, it stands as a research-intensive flagship university dedicated to preparing students to assume roles in leadership, responsibility and service to society. The University is one of only 17 institutions to hold the triple land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant designation. Its athletic teams compete in the powerhouse Southeastern Conference (SEC). The University has more than 522,000 former students who live, work and serve in more than 100 countries throughout the world.

One of the most dynamic institutions of higher education in the nation, Texas A&M is located in the heart of the Houston-Dallas-Austin triangle and within a two-hour drive of 26 million of the state’s 28 million residents. Texas A&M's main campus in College Station is home to more than 66,000 students. Another 5,400 students are at branch campuses in Galveston and Qatar and at the School of Law, Higher Education Center at McAllen, and Health Science Center locations across Texas. The flagship has an annual budget in excess of $2.1 billion.  

Reporting to Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp, the President is responsible for the effective and successful leadership of the University. The next President will respect and embrace the traditions and unique culture of the University, while continuing to encourage robust cutting-edge research, innovation and academic excellence. The President will be an exemplary communicator who will be able to not only articulate the University’s vision, but also work with all of its constituents to leverage the powerful resources of the University to lead it to even greater heights. The President will have unquestioned integrity, unending dedication to student success, and an unwavering commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

While nominations and applications will be accepted until a new President is selected, interested parties are encouraged to submit their materials to our consultant at the address below by December 11 to assure optimal consideration. Application materials should include a current resume and letter of interest. Please note that this search is being conducted in the most confidential manner and only the selected individual will be publicly disclosed.
