What We Do

At Texas A&M University Galveston Campus the Department of Marketing and Communications is an information gateway to the university. Our office is charged with communicating and showcasing the research, service and education as well as the culture of this unique by-the-sea community.  We share a passion for the water with our professors, administrators and staff who work amid this ocean related environment.  Our communications tell the exciting story of this tier-one, special purpose campus that is about everything that is on, under or near the sea.

Our service extends to the local, state and national news media by providing news, features and our faculty and staff experts to their newspapers, broadcasts and websites. Beyond our work with the Galveston Campus community we collaborate with the marketing and communication office at Texas A&M University at College Station and the Texas A&M University System as well as the Texas A&M Foundation and the Association of Former Students.
