starMission Statement
The Texas General Land Office serves the schoolchildren, veterans, and all people of Texas by preserving their history, protecting their environment, expanding economic opportunity, and maximizing state revenue through innovative administration and prudent stewardship of state lands and resources.

starAgency Philosophy
The staff of the Texas General Land Office consider innovation, creativity, and imagination to be part of our basic duty. We will accomplish our tasks using the highest standards of efficiency, professionalism, ethics, fairness, and friendliness toward those we serve -- the citizens of Texas -- and among those with whom we serve -- our co-workers.

Our people are our most valuable asset. We will support their personal and professional growth and fulfill our responsibility to reflect the rich diversity of Texans in our composition and our understanding. Quality will mark every product and every system and process. Inclusion will be a benchmark of good governance and policy, and we will consider differing opinions from competing interests in our continuing efforts to further the common good.
