LAH Success

Campaign LAH

Make a Gift to COLA
I am happy to announce that we have successfully completed the Campaign for LAH. We have met our goal of raising $1.5 million--and substantially surpassed it, the total to date being $1,912,305!

None of this would have been possible without the vision and dedication, the passion and good will, of the committee that guided this effort:
Alex and Layne de Alvarez Martin W. Dies III Andre Kovensky
Judy Perkins Juan R. Salem Doug Schmidt
Ruth L. Suzman J. Garland and Laurie Watson Bryan and Allison Wagner

Special thanks goes to Martin Dies, who chaired the committee with a clear vision, steadfast dedication, and never failing good humor. Martin’s spirited advocacy, his belief that a liberal arts education is more important today than ever, has inspired and energized our community. And remember: our goal was to raise money to enable gifted students without means to attend U.T. Austin and to enable LAH students to study abroad, pursue research, and participate in internships. It was also to build a community that would support LAH, the College of Liberal Arts, and U.T. Austin for generations to come. That community has come together and is growing, over six hundred now in communication through LinkedIn and Facebook.


The Campaign has been a success, but it is just the beginning. If we are to realize our dream of providing scholarships and funding so that all LAH students can have the life changing experiences of study abroad, research, and internships, we will need more funding. And I am delighted to say, we are on our way to realizing that dream, a bequest $75,000 just coming in to set up an endowment, smaller but vitally important gifts arriving each week.


All of us who have the privilege of working with the Liberal Arts Honors Program are particularly grateful to those listed below. You—parents, alumni, and friends-- have built a foundation that will enable LAH students for years to come to fashion an education that leads to a meaningful life.
