Since its founding in 1948 as the Dad's Association, Texas Parents has been an important part of the life and culture of the university. One of the department's objectives is to recognize and honor outstanding University students, faculty and staff as appropriate through scholarships, awards and endowments. These awards are made possible in part because of the generous donations of Longhorn parents and families.
Texas Parents serves all students’ families who need assistance navigating university resources. All parents and families of enrolled undergraduate students are members of the Texas Parents Association, the university’s official association of parents and families. Membership provides benefits to support and promote student success from enrollment through graduation.
