The Facility Design Guidelines (FDG) pdf at the bottom of the page of the provided website (http://www.tamus.edu/offices/fpc/forms/) indicates that "All buildings shall be designed to achieve LEED 2009 Silver requirements." You can find this on Section A- Page 6 of 24 under Environmental Practices, Sustainable Design.
The following link is the checklist that the Design Review sub-council utilizes to review campus development and it is based on TAMU's Campus Master Plan.
The University Council for the Built Environment (CBE) provides recommendations to the President on all aspects of the campus built environment. To support the Council, there are four sub-councils, one of which is the Design Review Sub-Council (DRSC). During the review process, the DRSC reviews all building projects against a design checklist which one aspect ensures compliance that all new buildings must be designed to LEED Silver standards. Specifically, the Texas A&M University requirements are found under: PLANNING REQUIREMENTS: Sustainability, Accessibility & Net-To-Gross Ratio, section B2. The checklist can be found at: http://cbe.tamu.edu/Data/Sites/1/allouruploads/DRSCMaterial/designchecklistfornewbuildingsoct2010.pdf
