“You can point to Dr. Murano in the stands and tell your young ladies not to shorten their dreams. She’s a wonderful role model.” - Texas A&M Head Coach Gary Blair
Dr. Elsa A. Murano is the 23rd President of Texas A&M University. An avid sports fan, she and her husband, Peter, can be seen cheering in the stands at numerous Aggie women’s basketball games throughout the season. Taking office on Jan. 3, 2008, she is the first woman and first Hispanic-American to lead the oldest public institution of higher learning in Texas—now one of the largest teaching and research universities in the nation. Dr. Murano is also the only female and only minority president in the Big 12 Conference.
