A new idea is born.

Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp saw the potential in Riverside Campus and its location, though this time for a different purpose.

In May of 2016, Chancellor Sharp announced the transformation of Riverside Campus into the RELLIS Campus, named for the six Aggie Core values of respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity and selfless service. The innovative campus is now a technology and testing research hub that facilitates collaboration between private and public sector companies and provides unique educational opportunities for students.
