By establishing an endowment, we make a promise to contribute loyally. . . for the next 10, 20, or even more years.

The Ashbel Smith Circle recognizes supporters who establish endowments for strategic use by the Chancellor of The University of Texas System. Endowment gifts are invested, never spent. Earnings from these investments are for the unrestricted use of the Chancellor to support the Chancellor’s initiatives and advance the mission of the UT System.
It's about doing what's right for the next generation and always striving to leave something better than the way you found it.
Cindi and Rex G. Baker III

Who was Ashbel Smith?
Ashbel Smith, M.D., was the first president of The University of Texas System Board of Regents. He had a long and distinguished career in medicine, education and public service.
During his term on the Board of Regents, Smith was dedicated to recruiting the best faculty members available and to developing a curriculum befitting a "university of the first class." Smith became known as both the "father of Texas medicine" and the "father of The University of Texas."
It is appropriate that individuals investing in UT System endowments in perpetuity be linked to Ashbel Smith's name.
