A lot if that group is The UT Women & Philanthropy. In just five years, Women & Philanthropy has donated $176,931 in grants for University programs and projects. And they had fun doing it!

W&P pledged $50,000 in 2009 to name a classroom in the new Savage & Associates Complex for Business Learning and Engagement. We were asked to supply a number of quotes from famous women that could be framed and placed on the walls of our classroom. Members voted on quotes and the College was so impressed with our choices that they created a graphic mural wall that not only highlights the quotes, but also images of the women who made them. This took some time to arrange and install. The result, however, is worth the wait.

Interview Suit Initiative: Heather Karns, Assistant Dean of Career Services & Alumni Affairs for the College of Law shares that the Interview Suit Initiative started by member, Jane McQuade, has been a wonderful success. Jane and her husband, The Hon. Richard McQuade, donated gift certificates so that a male and a female law student could purchase a new suit in time for their job interviews. Individuals may also donate gently used suits and professional attire for women. The Eberly Center for Women accepts these clothing items. Just drop them off during their business hours (8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays). What a wonderful way to assist a student get a jump-start on her career.
