Distinguished Service Award
Honoring non-alumni whose service makes a profound and positive difference to the university.
From time to time, there emerges an individual who was not a student at The University of Texas at Austin whose service makes a profound and positive difference to the university. In recognition of this remarkable service, the Texas Exes may, by consensus of its past presidents, present a special award in conjunction with the annual Distinguished Alumnus Awards. The merit of the award is defined by the quality and stature of recipients and is not routinely awarded.
