Giving Priorities

What’s your passion? Easing a student’s financial burden so she can complete her law degree? Encouraging young lawyers to confront social issues? Continuing our 30-year winning streak at moot court and mock trial competitions around the country? There are as many ways to touch lives at South Texas College of Law Houston as there are interests. Connect with your passion. We can help. Listed below are the funding priorities critical to our mission:

Annual Gifts provide our students and faculty with the daily resources needed for learning. As a non-profit institution, South Texas Law relies on your generosity to keep tuition low and maintain a tradition of excellence in preparing today’s students to become tomorrow’s leaders. You can direct your annual gift to the area of greatest need, annual scholarships, or the program or department of your choice. For more information, contact Susan Diederich, Director of Annual Giving at 713-646-1800 or sdiederich@stcl.edu.

Scholarship Gifts help make a South Texas Law education possible for deserving students who might not otherwise be able to afford it. They also bridge the gap at a time when commercial loans and government grants are harder to come by. South Texas Law has always drawn strength from the quality and diversity of its students. Scholarship gifts ensure more of the very best students can access a South Texas Law education, regardless of personal financial situation. For more information, contact Susan Diederich, Director of Annual Giving at 713-646-1800 or sdiederich@stcl.edu.

Capital Gifts support the physical spaces and tools that enable exceptional learning—from classrooms equipped with the latest furnishings and technology, to the Fred Parks Law Library’s popular print and digital resources, to the build-out of the 11th Floor to complete Dean Garland Walker’s original vision for the Tower Building. For more information, contact Mindy Guthrie, Vice President of Philanthropy and Alumni Relations at 713-646-1797 or mguthrie@stcl.edu.

Practice Institute and Program Gifts support the practice-ready curriculum that has been central to our educational experience since 1923.

Endowment Gifts guarantee financial support will remain readily available for the future needs of South Texas Law and its students. A strong endowment reduces our reliance on tuition revenue and fundraising to support operational needs. The impact of these visionary gifts is seen and felt across campus every day. Over the years, alumni and friends of the law school have established endowments to fund student scholarships, faculty chairs and professorships, prizes, and support for research and experiential learning opportunities. For more information, contact Mindy Guthrie, Vice President of Philanthropy and Alumni Relations at 713-646-1797 or mguthrie@stcl.edu.

Whether you are part of a local law firm or multinational corporation, South Texas Law offers an array of opportunities to support and partner with some of the world’s most driven law students, faculty, and alumni. Year after year, law firms and companies find great interns and future employees at South Texas Law.
