State of the Press

Established in 1979, just a few years after the Press’s founding, the Advancement Board of Texas A&M University Press provides advice and support from leading figures in many of the constituencies that the Press serves. The Board includes former students of the University, other friends and admirers of the Press from almost every part of Texas and beyond.

Mission Statement

The Advancement Board of Texas A&M University Press serves as a bridge between the Press, the University, its former students and friends, and the larger academic and general community, throughout the state and nation. Its members are important ambassadors for the Press to the leadership and all the constituencies of the University.

The Advancement Board promotes awareness and recognition of the significant contributions the Press has made to Texas A&M’s rise to major research university status and further supports the ongoing financial challenges and opportunities
the Press faces in the rapidly evolving age of 21st century scholarly publishing. Its principal objective is to assist the Press Director and other officers of the University in bringing new sources of outside funding to the Press.
