Changing the World:
Stories Celebrating 100 Years of Graduate Education
at The University of Texas at Austin
In celebration of the 2010 Centennial anniversary of the Graduate School at The University of Texas at Austin, a hardcover book commemorating the anniversary has been published by UT Press.
Since 1910, more than 125,000 individuals have earned a master’s or doctoral degree in more than one hundred programs across campus. Yet the story of the Graduate School is not a collection of dates, offices, buildings, numbers of graduates, or national rankings of its degree programs. Rather, it is the story of those men and women who pursued their dreams and earned the highest degrees academia offers.
Graduate school is a time of discovering new knowledge and training for future achievement while inspiring undergraduates and working alongside the finest faculty. Graduate students design research projects and develop new ideas that, in time, go on to change the world.
This book tells the story of just a few of these graduates who have, in large and small ways, left their mark on the university and the world. But they are representative of so many more alumni who have gone before and those who will come after. Changing the World is about passions pursued, unexpected paths taken, lessons learned, and impacts made on the lives of others.
Kathleen Mabley, editor of the book, is the former Director of Communications for the Graduate School at The University of Texas at Austin.
