About the Moody Gift

On Oct. 21, 2013, the Moody Foundation of Galveston announced a $50 million commitment to establish the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas at Austin.

This legacy gift for current and future generations of Texans will result in the largest endowment for the study of communication of any public university in the nation. It ensures the Moody College can recruit the best professors, the best administration and the best undergraduate and graduate students.

This gift enables the Moody College to compete with the top universities in the nation—both public and private—and positions it as the top university in the nation for communication scholarship and education.

On Nov. 7, 2013 at 5 p.m. (CST), The University of Texas at Austin officially dedicated the Moody College of Communication at a celebration at Walter Cronkite Plaza on campus. The event featured speakers including Moody Trustee Ross Moody, University of Texas at Austin President Bill Powers and Moody College of Communication Dean Roderick P. Hart.
