What Starts Here starts with you
The University of Texas at Austin is preparing to launch the What Starts Here campaign — the most ambitious fundraising effort in our history. Committed volunteer leaders set an example for Longhorn Nation through their leadership, passion and personal investments, and will ensure transformative impact on our students, faculty and ability to change the world.
Our campaign volunteer leaders’ generosity, leadership and vision for UT make them some of the university’s most valued partners.
