President’s Excellence Society and Deans’ Circle
The President’s Excellence Society and Deans’ Circle is the premier donor recognition society at UTHealth designed to raise unrestricted funds, giving the university’s president and deans a critical operational advantage.
No other initiative—philanthropic or otherwise—provides this kind of critical funding to UTHealth. It enables its leaders to do what they do best for their own institution: respond to unexpected opportunities, navigate change, and build for the future.
How to Become a President’s Excellence Society & Deans’ Circle Member
Membership in the President’s Excellence Society & Deans’ Circle is open to faculty, staff, alumni and friends who make a leadership gift commitment of $1,000 - $10,000 or more annually to the President’s Excellence Fund or one of the six Deans’ Excellence Funds.
