UT Dallas needs top talent on both sides of the classroom in order to fulfill its mission of advancing groundbreaking research, driving economic change and educating tomorrow’s leaders. In order to compete with the world’s great universities, UT Dallas must continue to develop as an attractive destination for those looking to advance their careers.
Donor support plays a critical role in expanding access to our University for students from all backgrounds and provides the resources necessary for faculty to conduct impactful teaching and industry-changing research.
Cost should not be a barrier for students to achieve their academic and professional goals. Thanks to supporters of the University’s financial aid programs, UT Dallas ranks among the top universities in the country for low student debt and best value for tuition cost.
UT Dallas is proud to be one of the most diverse campuses in the United States. In order to continue its trajectory of growth, the University must continue to improve in the recruitment and retention of students from underrepresented groups, increase matriculation from Texas community colleges and ensure rigorous academic experience across all disciplines. New support for scholarships, fellowships and curriculum development will be central to accomplishing these goals.
Faculty at UT Dallas provide excellence in education and research across eight schools and 141 academic programs. Their work extends beyond the classroom to UTD’s many laboratories and programmatic centers, where faculty members work in conjunction with students and corporate partners to create innovative solutions to society’s biggest problems.
University supporters can help enable the research breakthroughs that happen every day on campus through the creation of endowed chairs and professorships, specific research opportunity funds or targeted support for a specific academic center or program.
Enriching the Student Experience
In order to help students achieve their aspirations, UT Dallas must foster an environment which inspires excellence, develops well-rounded students and uses the most advanced technologies to enhance both teaching and learning.
A vibrant residential campus with quality classrooms and common spaces is necessary to promote students’ well-being and quality of life. Donor support has been invaluable in transforming campus into a beautiful home for all members of our community and has equipped classrooms, laboratories and workshops with cutting-edge technology that improves educational outcomes.
Continued support for capital construction projects, new technology, student groups, internships and research opportunities is necessary to help UT Dallas become a world-class destination for students.
