Former Bryan Air Force Base to be transformed into multimillion-dollar research hub and education center over next few years (May 2, 2016)

 

Quote

Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp announced this morning that the Riverside campus soon will be transformed into a multi-million technology and testing research hub, while a unique educational center will be built along side it.

The 1,900-acre campus adjacent to Texas 47 and Texas 21 —  land developed in 1942 for the Bryan Army Air Base and acquired by Texas A&M 20 years later — already is home to the Texas Transportation Institute and Texas A&M Engineer

Making progress for future RELLIS campus

 

Quote

Officials are preparing to begin several new construction projects at the 2,000-acre site. A&M System officials said many of structures targeted for demolition on the 2,000-acre campus are "decaying warehouses" that will be replaced with academic and research and development facilities over the next few years. Not all of the older structures on the campus are set to be torn down, however. Officials said facilities such as the chapel, flight tower, hangers and water tower that remain from the campus' days as the former Bryan Air Base will be preserved.

Blinn College, Texas A&M celebrate RELLIS Campus groundbreaking

 

Quote

In May 2016, Chancellor Sharp announced plans to create a new research and development campus to help companies move ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace, while also offering a new path toward a college degree. One aspect of the RELLIS Campus plan involves the development of a multi-institutional Gateway Education Center that will provide space for Texas A&M System member institutions and Blinn to offer a variety of curricula.


“This relationship between The Texas A&M University System and Blinn College is literally the envy of community colleges and universities all over the United States of America,” Sharp said. “This is how you make sure that students take courses that transfer – you talk to each other, and that is what these two institutions have been doing for 30 or 40 years.”
