UGS Parents Program

Crowd of students wearing blue UGS shirts

The Parents Program is a unique opportunity for parents and family members of students in the School of Undergraduate Studies (UGS) to engage in the undergraduate experience at the University of Texas at Austin. The program will give members direct access to the dean’s office, as well as an outlet to provide valuable feedback in order to positively impact your child’s experience in UGS. Join now to share your own Longhorn experience alongside your student!

As the newest school on the forty acres, UGS relies on our loyal friends and generous donors to help us build on our tradition of innovation and excellence. The suggested donation amount is $2,500, but we are thankful for all levels of support from our parents. Annual contributions to UGS provide the following:

  • Invitation to an exclusive Parents Program meal with the dean
  • VIP access to University Lecture Series event
  • Quarterly ‘Lunch and Learn’ conference calls with UGS department heads
  • Quarterly e-newsletters from the dean
  • Invitation to regional events

With your membership, you will be directly contributing to the success of your student and to every undergraduate at UT as we work together to create and deliver student services in the ever-changing landscape of 21st century education.
