Board of Governors

Board of Governors

The Board of Governors serves as an advisory and advocacy group which works in conjunction with the UT Foundation and the university administration on the management and direction of the UT Alumni Association. Consisting of 32 members from across the UT System, the board meets three times a year to discuss engagement opportunities, to review programs and services and to evaluate academic enrichment programs supported by the alumni association.
