How to Help Support the Oil & Gas Law Institute at South Texas College of Law Houston
South Texas College of Law Houston’s ability to make strategic investments in initiatives such as the Oil & Gas Law Institute hinges on the amount of annual support at its disposal, and the size and strength of our endowment. This year, the College has directed a portion of its annual operating budget to fund the formation of the Institute. This budget has been supplemented by early philanthropic investments in the Institute made by generous friends of the College.
In order to sustain the Oil & Gas Law Institute for the future and expand its reach through partnerships with industry and other academic thought leaders, new CLE courses, public lectures, and symposia, and additional faculty and staff, the College is seeking to enlist the help of oil and gas community, its alumni, other corporate and foundation partners and the community at large.
The evolution of oil and gas law – and of the legal education and scholarship behind it – challenges all of us to be more nimble and purposeful. It requires us to innovate, reimagine, and adapt. So too do we understand the growing role philanthropy must play in the life of any educational institution that wishes to lead.
South Texas College of Law Houston would greatly appreciate a philanthropic investment in the Oil & Gas Law Institute. Together, we can ensure the Institute’s place as Houston’s premiere legal teaching and learning resource serving the oil and gas industry.
