The Dean’s Society

Dean Society Members

The Dean’s Society recognizes the most generous Law Fund contributors and is reserved for individuals who contribute at least $2,500 per year.  Dean’s Society members play a key role in the Law Center’s continued pursuit of a “Top 30” national ranking.   To view an online presentation of the Dean’s Society, click here.

WHAT IS THE DEAN’S SOCIETY?

The Dean’s Society is the highest-level giving society of the Law Fund and derives its name from the continuum of leadership that directs the Law Center. It recognizes donors who provide us with significant annual support.

DEAN’S SOCIETY PRIORITIES:

• Obtain “Top 30” standing for the Law Center

• Support cutting-edge faculty research

• Fund student scholarships

• Support the Admissions and Career Development Offices

• Recruit and retain nationally prominent faculty

• Support the continuing renovation of Law Center buildings

• Encourage alumni giving at all levels

CHARTING STRATEGIC DIRECTIONS

Unrestricted gifts allow us to innovate and respond to emerging opportunities. Dean’s Society members will be called upon for their insight and input that make a meaningful difference in the quality and capabilities of the Law Center. The Dean’s Society provides a forum where everyone can make a difference.

REASONS FOR GIVING

Even without the pressing financial needs, there are many reasons why our members have given:

“I want to see the Law Center rise in annual ranking surveys. Alumni participation helps the effort. When the Law Center climbs, it benefits me.”

“The Law Center gave me the foundation that made it possible for me to practice and prosper.”

“My giving makes the Law Center possible for others.”

“I give to ensure that the same level of teaching excellence exists for future students.”

“I want to invest in Houston and Texas. The Law Center deserves to be part of a Tier- One Institution and my gift helps make that happen.”
