Our Mission

We are the Austin Chapter of The Ex-Students' Association of The University of Texas [Texas Exes]. The Texas Exes Austin Chapter core purpose is to be an independent voice that champions the University, and to organize alumni and friends in the Austin area to change the world. Our vision is to (1) advocate for UT [praise, promote, protect], (2) engage alumni through fun and serious-minded content, and (3) develop student relationships via recruitment and raising scholarships for talented Austin area high school students to attend The University of Texas at Austin for years to come.

The Texas Exes Austin Chapter is composed entirely of volunteers.
