What Starts Here Changes the World
The Campaign for Texas focuses on people — faculty and students, scientists and scholars. It focuses on programs and facilities that enable people to achieve their potential. It focuses on what the University already does well to become exceptional.
Each of the University’s colleges, schools, and units has outlined specific campaign priorities and funding goals, which range from $5 million to $350 million. Campaign gifts will be used to recruit and retain first-rate faculty, create scholarships and fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students, support research in all disciplines, expand academic programs, and upgrade facilities and infrastructure. Advancements in each of these areas will support the University in its quest to be the No. 1 public research university in the nation.
President Bill Powers believes that The University of Texas at Austin can be the best public university in America. It’s an ambitious goal — indeed, he’ll tell you it’s an audacious goal — but it’s one within reach, with the support of alumni and friends.
The president’s priorities for UT will define the great public university in the 21st century:
UT is strong and getting stronger. With enough discipline, focus, and fortitude, getting to number one is an achievable goal. Join the effort, and know that what starts here really does change the world.
