The Mitchell Society is christened in honor of George Phydias Mitchell, who donated, in honor of his parents, the land for the main campus of Texas A&M University at Galveston.

The Society is comprised of those who want the Galveston campus of Texas A&M University to have the necessary private support to thrive and grow as the only maritime university on the Gulf Coast and one of the premier ocean-front universities in the world.

TAMUG needs significant private support to provide the margin of excellence to enhance the entire University, to a level well beyond what can be achieved with State and other standard support. 

Members of the Mitchell Society are individuals and organizations who contribute $1,000 annually after being invited by the President of TAMUG to join. Their gifts support:

  • Scholarships to recruit and retain outstanding students

  • Campus beautification

  • Recognition of outstanding faculty and staff

  • Intercollegiate competition for student teams

Mitchell Society members are invited to special events on campus, interact with students and receive early briefings on TAMUG developments.
