One of those proud traditions is philanthropy. Private gifts have helped build the University and made it the excellent institution it is today. Giving helps the University recruit and retain the best students and faculty. Giving enables faculty and students to conduct groundbreaking research. Giving supports modern classrooms and labs, as well new technology, libraries, and collections of art and cultural artifacts.
What does this philanthropic tradition mean for you? Giving to UT increases the value of your degree. A degree from a great university opens doors. Whether you’re joining the work force or going on to graduate school, your degree provides advantages only the nation’s best universities can offer.
