Texas A&M University's Department of Computer Science and Engineering is one of the founding members of the Standard C++ Foundation. Other founding members of the Foundation are Microsoft, Google, Intel, IBM, HP, ARM, Pearson, Bloomberg, OpenMP, BD Software... The Foundation is a not-for-profit organization with the mission to convey up-to-date information about C++ and to make available both standard and community libraries to developers of modern C++. It does this primarily through its isocpp.org website.
Among the initial contents, you can find a sample from Texas A&M's own Bjarne Stroustrup's forthcoming book: The C++ Programming Language (4th Edition).
The directors and officers of the Foundation are Chandler Carruth (Google) [Treasurer], Beman Dawes (Boost C++ Libraries), Stefanus Du Toit (Intel) [Secretary], Bjarne Stroustrup (Texas A&M University), Herb Sutter (Microsoft) [Chairman, President], and Michael Wong (IBM) [Vice President].
