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 Council was established in 1982 to provide students with representation at the highest levels within the A&M System. The members address a variety of student-related issues.
The Council enhances student leadership development and educational opportunities by funding some of their activities. These include teleconferences or face-to-face meetings at A&M System institutions, and trips to Austin each legislative session to meet with government representatives and view government in action.
Chancellor's Academy of Teacher Educators
The Texas A&M University System honors faculty members who have significant impact on the preparation of teachers in the field of education. Each year a cohort of exemplary educators are awarded a one thousand dollar stipend ($1,000) provided by the Chancellor's Century Council and a commemorative medallion bearing the seal of the A&M System. The program established in 2011, recognizes Academy members at the Chancellor's Century Council annual meeting.
The Council Annual Meeting
Each year, 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 meet with legislators in Austin, tour the campuses, view current research initiatives, and visit with faculty, students and administrators of the host institution.
The A&M System participates in community-wide events and fund-raising activities to enhance relationships with our campus communities.
The Council provides monetary support for Information-Appreciation luncheons, dinners or receptions for legislators who have been beneficial to the A&M System.
