Making a difference
  • "College of Science & Engineering professors have had the greatest impact on me. All have a genuine interest in stimulating learning in the classroom and have taken an interest in me as a whole. I was even part of a group that designed a product to teach middle school science and we were granted $6,000 to move our model to reality!"

  • "The impact of gifts will be seen for years to come as current and future students become community leaders and as today's cutting edge research becomes a natural part of our lives. Outreach programs are strengthened; bright, energetic undergraduate students are recruited to become teachers; highly talented graduate students select TCU over other universities, and exciting research is conducted by faculty and students."

    —Dr. Molly Weinburgh
    1. William L. and Betty F. Adams Chair of Education
  • "In its first global ranking of EMBA programs, The Economist ranked our program 21st in the world. This is a very competitive category with many very high quality programs. Our program is just over 10 years old, and we face stiff competition in this area. As we move towards the new Neeley building and renovation of the existing ones, we will be able to enhance our competitiveness."

  • “Without scholarships and financial aid, private schools like TCU are unattainable for someone like me. That financial support also provides motivation because you want to prove to donors that they made a good decision.”

  • "One of the more interesting research projects conducted at KinderFrogs has been the Reading Dogs program. Kids read to the dogs – kids who would not read to any person will read to dogs. And the dogs love it. They will start barking when they get to the corner because they're so excited to be with the kids."

  • "Holding the Lowe Chair allows me to do the things I do. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to be so involved in the leadership of the Texas State Historical Association, devote so much time to my graduate students, and continue to pursue an active research and publication agenda."
