For more than a century, The School of Architecture has influenced the built environment and shaped cities in Texas and around the world. As we look to the next 100 years and address the complexities of unprecedented urbanization, climate change, and global health challenges, our work in the disciplines of the built environment will be key in providing solutions. These solutions will call for adaptable buildings, sustainable cities, and resilient landscapes; they’ll encourage economic opportunity and the flourishment of culture, and they will ultimately build a healthier and better world.
 
With the generous and strategic support of the School of Architecture’s alumni, friends, and supporters, we can achieve this vision and build a better future for Texas and beyond.

YOUR GIFT OPENS A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES

Contributions to The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture are an investment in the lives of our talented students. These budding architects, designers, and planners benefit through your generosity, leading to meaningful experiences that prime them for success far beyond their time on campus.

FUNDING PRIORITIES

ATTRACT THE MOST TALENTED YOUNG MINDS FROM ALL COMMUNITIES AND EVERY PART OF SOCIETY 

And, once they’ve enrolled, provide them with equal access to all of the school’s resources through scholarships, graduate fellowships, as well as access to technology, life-changing experiences, career opportunities, and professional development.

RECRUIT, RETAIN, AND SUPPORT OUTSTANDING FACULTY

A diverse and multidisciplinary faculty serve as the intellectual foundation of our school, and their scholarship and research are vital to the continual evolution of the canon of architectural and planning education and to address a constantly changing world.

ELEVATE OUR RESEARCH EXPERTISE THROUGH THE CENTER FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

In recent years, the CSD has grown to support millions of dollars in funding from public, private, and nonprofit sources. Not only does this enable us to contribute our expertise on matters that have an immediate and long-term effect on the transformation of cities and regions, but it also opens up a suite of experiential, hands-on learning opportunities for students.

UPDATE OUR FACILITIES AND INVEST IN TECHNOLOGY

Like the design field itself, architecture education is materials-intensive and requires significant, ongoing investment in technology to stay on the leading edge. State-of-the-art tools and updated facilities support new ways of teaching, working, designing, and making for the 21st century.
