Dear Alumni:


CALLING ALL ALUMNI!  The Austin Alumni Chapter of Huston-Tillotson University would like to reclaim former members and welcome new ones.


As Huston-Tillotson University Alumni Chapter prepares for the upcoming challenges of rebuilding our alumni membership, creating a demanding alumni program and preparing for the upcoming year, we invite you to consider joining or rejoining the Austin Chapter. The vision of our chapter is to build a strong alumni organization to enhance the education and social experiences of the students enrolled in the University.  Dedication to excellence and achievement must be as evident today as it has been throughout the rich history of the school.


Please join us in our efforts to promote Huston-Tillotson and educate the public about its historic role in educating young adults as well as non-traditional students. You can assist by providing support to our alma mater in a several ways: volunteering to assist in the hands-on work of the Austin Chapter, or supporting our fundraising efforts and becoming financial.


The chapter meets at 10:00 a.m. on the second Saturday during the school year - September through May – in the Dickey-Lawless Science Auditorium on the HT campus. You will be able to fellowship and reconnect with classmates, meet other ex-students and friends, and work with responsible leaders who maintain the connection with the University and the student body.


Please contact me at (512) 618-1771 or email me at for additional information. Annual Membership Dues are $50.00 and are payable now for the 2017-2018 program year.  Dues may be paid online, by mail or in person.
