The Power of Participation

the Forty

The Power of ParticipationIt CountsThe power of participation can change the world. It’s happening in our classrooms, our labs, our libraries, and in coffeehouses brewing genius across the Forty Acres.

It’s a group of researchers on campus using one of the most powerful advanced computing systems on the planet to find breakthrough ways of identifying brain tumors more accurately.

The power of participation is a team of freshmen — yes, freshmen — working with faculty on real-world applications in biosciences, computer science, and more, in UT’s Freshman Research Initiative.

It’s a single donor joining nearly 850,000 others who, since the Campaign for Texas began in 2006, have made gifts of less than $1,000 to UT.

Large or small, the dollars matter, but the participation of our alumni like you matters equally as much. More than 46,000 alumni — 10.3 percent — made gifts to UT last year. If that number were to increase to 15 or 20 percent, tens of thousands more Longhorns would be directly helping students.
