As we celebrate more than 90 years as Houston’s foremost center of legal education, South Texas College of Law gives thanks to the alumni, parents, and friends who support this great institution. We depend greatly on your generosity. From annual gifts that make an immediate impact to endowed gifts that last for generations, contributions to South Texas serve as a catalyst for positive change.
Our donors are recognized both on campus —on The Partners in Excellence donor wall,—and in our Annual Report to Donors. Each of these tributes displays the supporters of our many gift programs, listed below. When you give to South Texas College of Law you support our mission, which is to provide a diverse body of students with the opportunity to obtain an exceptional legal education, preparing graduates to serve their community and the profession with distinction. Thank you for sharing your spirit of generosity.
