Inspiring Excellence: The Campaign for UT Tyler
This is a $30,000,000, five-year fund raising effort to build excellence by investing in exceptional students and nationally recognized faculty.
Dollars raised in the Campaign will help attract and enable strong students to attend UT Tyler; attract leading professor-scholars to teach here; and, through inspired graduates and successful community initiatives, significantly impact lives in the East Texas communities we serve.
