For more than 100 years, Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences has maintained a strong tradition of leadership across agriculture, natural resources and life sciences, establishing our college as one of the leading organizations of its kind in the state, nation and world. This distinguished status would not be possible without the dedication of our faculty, staff and students to promote the land-grant mission by feeding our world, protecting our environment, improving our health, and enriching our youth. The Dean’s Outstanding Achievement Awards, established in 2012, recognize, reward and encourage excellence in the work of faculty, staff and students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
Karen Beathard received the Dean’s Outstanding Achievement Award in Service on Wednesday, September 16, 2015.
This award recognizes and encourages excellence in service or other outreach related activities by faculty or staff. Successful nominees will exhibit outstanding personal engagement in outreach and engagement with the community, university, professional organizations, student organizations or other groups. The award supports Texas A&M’s Vision 2020 plan, “This landmark legislation [the Morrill Act] recognized that education could and should lead to the improvement of the human condition. It also resulted in recognition that learning should be for the many rather than the few. This strong notion of service still prospers at Texas A&M University.”
