In 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, resulting in the largest endowment for the study of communication of any public university in the nation. The gift, among the largest ever awarded by the Moody Foundation, supports projects across the Moody College and is aimed to help position it as the nation's leading institution for research and teaching in new and convergent media.
