Naming Opportunities: Academic and Research Facilities

First             Lady Laura Bush with students, dedicating the Katherine Anne Porter House
Endowments from the Burdine Johnson Foundation, the Angel Foundation and others helped to establish the Katherine Anne Porter Literary Center in the author's childhood home in Kyle, near San Marcos. The Center attracts audiences to readings by famous authors and poets and houses a writer-in-residence. First Lady Laura Bush dedicated the Center as a National Literary Landmark in 2002.
Many opportunities exist to name facilities within the College of Liberal Arts, including the College itself. Your naming gift will provide lasting recognition for you or a person you wish to honor, affirming your commitment to excellent teaching and research in the humanities and social sciences.

Gifts that name centers, institutes, and research facilities ensure that students have excellent facilities in which to learn. They also help the College to build a world-class faculty by providing special research facilities and equipment not supported by state funds. The production of research adds valuable knowledge and increases the quality and prestige of our academic programs, enabling the College to attract and retain first-class faculty and students.

The facility you support can bear your name or the name of the person you wish to honor. The College seeks donors to name a variety of facilities:

  • The College of Liberal Arts
  • Schools, Departments, Centers, and Institutes within the College of Liberal Arts
  • Buildings housing the departments, centers, and facilities comprising the College of Liberal Arts
  • Classrooms, seminar rooms, laboratories, libraries, and other learning facilities
  • Research facilities
