A comprehensive approach to friend and fund raising for UT geosciences.

The Development & Alumni Relations is working with our friends and alumni to build the strongest geosciences alumni network and academic institution in the world.  We are your go-to source for engaging with the Jackson family through events, re-connecting with the 40 acres or making a gift to support future geosciences leaders. Please consider making a gift of your time, talents or treasure to advance the mission of the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin within the context of development and alumni relations.
