A Note From the Dean

Rachel Davis Mersey

Every year, Moody College has around 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students seeking to obtain a world-class education and one-of-a-kind opportunities in Austin and beyond. They are met by faculty at the top of their fields, advisors to guide them on their college journeys and friends that will last a lifetime. We are a large college in a large University that still somehow remains a tight-knit community with one-on-one attention and support. Our students consistently share that one of the most rewarding parts of their college experience were the connections they made in the classroom, in programs, in internships and in Austin. We are proud to offer that experience as our students prepare to change the world.
