2022 Advancement Academy Conference

Main page content

The By UT For UT conference addresses the unique interests and needs of UT professionals. At our latest conference held on Dec. 5 and 6 at the Hilton Austin, attendees engaged with colleagues, national experts and industry leaders who shared their insights and expertise in fundraising, advancement services, alumni relations, events, communications, media relations, marketing, branding and more. 

We offered 24 educational sessions over two days, providing colleagues the opportunity to glean great ideas and best practices that they can incorporate in the excellent work they’re doing at their respective campuses.

Other highlights of the conference included the Newcomer’s Welcome for more than 300 colleagues who joined UT institutions in the last three years; a reception and dinner for nearly 500 conference attendees at the Austin Club; a special philanthropy program that featured Maureen and Kelly Hackett of the Hackett Family Foundation; and a University Lands – Texas Treasure conversation hosted by Chancellor Milliken that explored the history, current state and future of the uniquely Texas Permanent University Fund (PUF).
