Campaign Funding Priorities and Naming Opportunities

Faculty Chairs and Other Support

At the University of Texas, teaching matters. Faculty members excel in training students to sharpen their analytical thinking and to open their minds to creative solutions. Our faculty write many of the textbooks and legal treatises that guide legal education, they assist legislators in reforming the law, and they advise the bar on matters of ethics and professional responsibility. Faculty endowments enhance our ability to compete for the best faculty by providing salary supplements and funding for research leaves, research assistants, travel expenses to attend scholarly conferences, and the purchase of specialized research materials.
