Dr. Hensley

RELLIS is a vision that could never come to fruition without the foresight of leaders such as Chancellor Sharp, a commitment to collaboration, and a fearlessness that inspires us to develop an educational model that has never before been attempted in the State of Texas."

Dr. Mary Hensley - Chancellor of the Blinn College District


This relationship between The Texas A&M University System and Blinn College is literally the envy of community colleges and universities all over the United States of America. This is how you make sure that students take courses that transfer – you talk to each other, and that is what these two institutions have been doing for 30 or 40 years.

John Sharp - Texas A&M Chancellor

Located adjacent to State Highway 47 and Highway 21, the RELLIS Campus is named for the Texas Aggies’ core values of respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity, and selfless service.
