You Make UT Great

What starts here changes the world. What starts here starts with you.

Longhorn Loyal recognizes The University of Texas at Austin’s most dedicated supporters. Students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents and friends who have made gifts in each of the three most recent fiscal years receive a membership to honor their loyalty and recognize their giving leadership. Longhorn Loyal members have collectively given more than $2 billion to UT in the last half century — an incredible show of support that is helping UT become the world’s highest-impact public research university.

Thank you for your loyalty.
