Board

Your leadership makes the difference

Established in 1937, The University of Texas at Austin’s Development Board supports the university’s mission by assisting the president, vice president for development, deans, directors and other university leaders in increasing philanthropic support for UT. A board membership is the highest-level engagement opportunity at the university, and members inspire others through their leadership, guidance and dedicated support.

2021-22 Development Board

The Development Board’s community of current and lifetime members work with the president, vice president for development and other university leaders to increase philanthropic support for UT. Board meetings take place on campus each fall and spring.

Executive Committee

The members of the Development Board Executive Committee are appointed by the president and chair for two-year terms. Executive Committee members recruit and nominate new Development Board members, recommend reappointments and life memberships, and directly advise the president on university fundraising priorities and strategies.
