The George P. Mitchell Society

Logo

The George P. Mitchell Society was developed to honor George Phydias Mitchell, who donated the Pelican Island land for the Galveston Campus of Texas A&M University as a tribute to his parents, Mike and Katrina Mitchell.

The George P. Mitchell Society is for individuals and businesses committed to the well-being of our oceans through maritime and marine research, education and training as conducted at Texas A&M University, Galveston Mitchell Campus.  It is a way to be actively involved in and to provide private support for the campus to thrive and grow as the only maritime university on the Gulf Coast and one of the premier ocean-front universities of the world.

This support boosts the entire University to beyond that which could be achieved with State and other traditional means of support alone.  It funds:

  • Scholarships to recruit and retain outstanding students.

  • Recognition of outstanding faculty and staff.

  • Maritime & marine research and education initiatives.

  • Maritime & marine program creation and enhancements.

  • And, the TAMUG Fund for Excellence.
