Official University Seal of A&M-Central Texas Approved

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The official university seal of Texas A&M University – Central Texas was approved today during a meeting of The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents.

The official university seal of Texas A&M University – Central Texas contains the words “Texas A&M University Central Texas” displayed in a navy blue circle on the outer rim of the design and is separated by two five-point stars that represent the state of Texas and the United States of America. At the heart of the seal is an open book symbolizing the accumulation and dissemination of knowledge through the university’s devotion to excellence in teaching, service and scholarship.

The torch in the center of the design emerges from the open book providing eternal light, wisdom, and guidance. The flame itself is the spark that inspires intellectual curiosity and symbolizes the university’s commitment to lifelong learning. Underneath the torch is the establishment date of 2009.

The shield honors the unwavering allegiance to military service and provides protection to a diverse university that promotes personal responsibility and respect for all individuals. The four five-pointed stars on the top portion of the shield represent and pay tribute to the four universities — American Technological University, University of Central Texas, Tarleton State University-Central Texas and Texas A&M University-Central Texas — and community that were an instrumental part in the university’s creation. The three maroon stripes on the shield represent the three academic divisions — Business; Education, Psychology and Counseling; and Liberal Arts and Sciences.

The Olive Branch represents peace and goodwill, while the Oak Leaves symbolize strength and endurance.

The outer circle of the seal is cogged to honor our affiliation with The Texas A&M University System and to represent the railroad that Killeen and surrounding Central Texas cities were founded on.

Texas A&M University-Central Texas offers evening, weekend and online classes toward bachelor’s and master’s degrees and is located just off of Highway 190 at 1901 S. Clear Creek Road in Killeen. For more information, call 254-519-5421 or log on to http://www.TAMUCT.org.
