Texas A&M University http://ketr.org en Texas A&M University expands emerging 'genius corps' http://ketr.org/post/texas-am-university-expands-emerging-genius-corps <p>Nine internationally renowned researchers from various fields will be welcomed on Friday as fellows of the Texas A&amp;M University Institute for Advanced Study, part of a group that administrators have nicknamed the Genius Corps.</p><p>The term is a nod to the university’s storied Corps of Cadets, a student military organization that has largely defined campus culture since its founding in 1876. But it is also an indication of Texas A&amp;M’s desire to transform itself into a destination for top research talent, women and men who can elevate the university’s academic profile.</p> Mon, 10 Feb 2014 23:03:36 +0000 Reeve Hamilton - The Texas Tribune 49281 at http://ketr.org Texas A&M University expands emerging 'genius corps' A&M’s 12THMAN license plate auction begins Monday http://ketr.org/post/am-s-12thman-license-plate-auction-begins-monday <p>At noon on Monday Aug. 12, bidding on the only legal specialty license plate in Texas to read, “12THMAN,” begins.
