The University Development Board comprises loyal and influential UT alumni and friends from across the state and nation. As one of the highest-level volunteer opportunities at the University, the board serves as an advisory group to the president and makes a significant difference in the success of the institution.

Board members work with the president, and the deans, directors, and other University administrators, to increase private support of the institution and champion University-wide development priorities. They promote awareness among the University‚Äôs constituencies of the broad value and impact UT Austin has on society. They also encourage private philanthropy as a means to enhance public support to fulfill the compelling mission of the University and vision of the Commission of 125. Philanthropy is seen as an investment that supports higher education’s influence on our economy, health, culture, and overall quality of life.

The Development Board, formed by the Board of Regents in 1937, has supported the ambition of The University of Texas since day one. Board members have provided strong leadership and guidance for the university, including toward the successful completion of the $3 billion Campaign for Texas (2006-2014). They will continue to play a critical role in strengthening all bases of support at UT Austin.
