Together for Texans
UT and Texas A&M's tremendous impact on the Texas economy is due largely to their cutting-edge research. A state dollar spent on higher education generally returns $5.50 annually to the Texas economy, but a state dollar spent at UT or A&M returns $18 annually to the Texas economy! It is hard to imagine a more efficient program of economic development and that's why UT and A&M—Orange & Maroon—are 'Together for Texans.'
