Unique Opportunities to Support the System
The Chancellor’s Century Council supports many successful educational programs in the A&M System. The following are a few of the Council’s initiatives:
Chancellor’s Student Advisory Council
The Chancellor’s Student Advisory Board was established in 1982 to provide students with representation at the highest levels within the A&M System. The board has 22 members and addresses a variety of student-related issues.
The Council enhances student leadership development and educational opportunities by funding some of the board’s activities. These include monthly teleconferences or face-to-face meetings at A&M System institutions, an annual report to the Board of Regents, and trips to Austin each legislative session to meet with government representatives and view government in action.
The Council Annual Meeting
Each year, a member of the A&M System hosts the Council’s annual meeting. The annual meeting is a unique opportunity for Council members to witness first-hand the contributions each System member is making to our state. Council members tour the campuses, view current research initiatives, and visit with faculty, students and administrators of the host institution.
The A&M System participate in community-wide events and fund-raising activities to enhance relationships with our home communities.
The Council provides monetary support for Information-Appreciation luncheons, dinners or receptions for legislators who have been beneficial to the A&M System.
