The Presidential Impact Faculty Fellows program was established to recognize rising stars in their respective fields, and those who embody the university's commitment to advancing knowledge through transformational learning, discovery, innovation and impact for Texas and the world. Twenty-four faculty members from across Texas A&M's 16 colleges and schools, two branch campuses and comprehensive University Libraries were honored with this award.
The Presidential Impact Fellows program includes the use of the honorific title for life and an annual stipend of $25,000 each of the next three fiscal years to accelerate each recipient's pedagogy, research and service impacts. Identified by his or her dean and confirmed by academic leadership, these faculty are considered candidates for continued or new national and international acclaim and will utilize this honor to participate in national dialogue, advance their scholarship and create new partnerships.
