Professorships, study abroad top
college’s development wish list


For many Aggies, holiday giving includes gifts to Texas A&M as well as presents to friends and family. If there’s room on your year-end giving list for the College of Architecture, there’s plenty of opportunity to make a difference in a way that is meaningful to you.

“What a lot of people don’t realize is that when they make a charitable donation to the Texas A&M Foundation, they can direct how that donation will be used,” said Larry Zuber, the Foundation’s development officer for the College of Architecture. “Of course, general support of the college or a particular department is the most valuable, especially in tough economic times, but what’s important to many people is to make a difference in an area that is meaningful to the donor.”

“Many of the most popular giving opportunities are listed online at the Foundation’s website,” explains Zuber.  “However, charitable giving is a very personal activity, and I invite anyone who wants to deal with a live person to contact me at 979.845.0939 or by e-mail at  Our goal is to make sure people feel good about the contributions they make.”

This year, the endowed professorships honoring Rodney Hill and David Woodcock are at the top of the list, since former students started both initiatives and each will have broad impact across multiple disciplines in the college. Study abroad scholarships, which help students who otherwise can’t afford the added expenses of the college’s most valuable “other education” experience, are also a high priority. Likewise, each department and program has its own priorities that can benefit from your gift.
