2015 Plan II Parents and Family Events:

Sunday, October 18th, 10:30am to 12:30pm

Texas Alumni Center Connally Ballroom & the College of Liberal Arts Building (CLA)

We will begin Plan II Family Day with a brunch, followed by a set of shortened 'Model Classes' and a special service program presentation after the brunch.  This gives Plan II family members the chance to hear from Plan II Director, Michael Stoff, and several faculty members. 

Online Registration is closed.

If you have questions or concerns, you may call the Plan II Family Day Coordinator, Phillip Dubov at 512-471-2960 or leave a message with the Plan II receptionist at 512-471-1442.

We welcome you to share your questions and comments, visit with fellow parents, and enjoy the model classes and presentations. 

Here is the day’s schedule:
