The Texas BBA Parents Council Fund

"The Parents Council has provided a great pathway for us to connect with key members of the McCombs administration, leaders in the Program Office, and parents of other students.   We are confident that the involvement of the Parents Council will help the student experience at McCombs by providing feedback on programs and processes from the student and parents perspectives, and provide financial support to assist with these vital programs."
