The society’s members embody the organization’s creed of recognizing history, serving the community, and bringing honor to The University of Texas. The organization and its members have served their university, state, and nation over the last 100 years as governors, ambassadors, university chancellors, faculty members and presidents, congressmen and -women, judges…the list goes on. The society and its members are united by the purpose “to associate together leading members of the university for mutual benefit and cooperation, and to promote the best interests of the university and the student body.
