UT Hero Skyline

The University of Texas has a bold vision for the 21st century that embraces innovation and discovery. A vision that enriches the educational experience, takes on the most serious global challenges, and offers creative solutions. It is the vision of the Commission of 125, a group of dedicated alumni and friends who spent two years evaluating our university and giving us our charge:

“The University of Texas will be the best in the world at creating a disciplined culture of excellence that generates intellectual excitement, transforms lives, and develops leaders. The University of Texas will define for the 21st century what it means to be a university of the first class.”

To reach our goal we created The Campaign for Texas: an eight-year, $3 billion fundraising effort. After a momentum-building phase that began in September 2006, the campaign was announced publicly in October 2008, coinciding with the university’s 125th anniversary.
