The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents recently approved the naming of the Albritton Center for Grand Strategy (CGS) at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.
A 1971 graduate of Texas A&M University, Robert L. Albritton was appointed to the Board of Regents in 2015 by Gov. Greg Abbott. He served in the United States Air Force prior to beginning a distinguished career that included founding a number of diversified businesses, including Albritton Energy, Albritton Partners, and Mayfair Investments, where he is currently Chairman and CEO.
The CGS was established as an intellectual hub for the critical examination of American grand strategy, including supporting research that will take a fresh look at America’s grand strategic choices. Two of its primary goals are to foster dialogue between scholars and practitioners in the field and to help train a new generation of public servants to be grand strategic innovators.
The awards presented by Texas A&M’s Division of Academic Affairs celebrate contributions to Texas A&M through their dedication, initiative, outstanding achievements, enthusiasm and positive approach to service.
