After more than four years and 22,000 total contributions, UTD has met its goal of raising $200 million for the Realize the Vision campaign.
The campaign, which began in 2009, seeks to propel UTD to Tier One status. The $200 million was achieved about eight months ahead of schedule.
Aaron Conley, vice president for development and alumni relations, announced the milestone at the UT Dallas Alumni Awards Gala on April 3.
To reach UTD’s 75,000 alumni, fundraising events were held as far as Taiwan and India, and students working in the Comet Callers program contacted alumni from their school.
Companies who have contributed to the campaign include Ericsson and Pioneer Energy Services.
