Our MissionThe KBH Energy Initiative seeks to be the pre-eminent energy initiative at the intersection of energy business, law, and policy. We will pursue this mission by leveraging the resources of the McCombs Business and Law Schools, their alumni, and supporters to expand our knowledge and understanding of this crucial industry; to engage, inform, and connect leaders in that industry, in government, and at UT on core energy issues; to educate and inspire students to be the next generation of leaders; to grow the network and reach of the University of Texas throughout the world of energy.

Associate Advisory CouncilCreating specifically for graduates less than 10 years out of school, the Associate Advisory Council offers the same opportunities to impact the center as the Advisory Council. Benefits of this membership include one complimentary ticket to our Annual Symposium, invitations to other events, networking and mentoring opportunities with members of the Executive and Advisory Councils, and more.
Student Advisory CouncilThe KBH Student Advisory Council was created to foster opportunities for growth and professional development, and to serve as the representative body and voice for energy students at the university. Members represent the KBH center and the student voices by participlating in council meetings twice a year and other events, student meetings, energy treks, and more.

Get to Know Our Students
Annual Energy Mentoring ProgramThe energy mentoring program is a two-semester experience where we match mentors with students from various parts of campus based on industry interests. Students participating in the program will come from the McCombs School of Business, Hildebrand Department of Petroleum Engineering, Jackson School of Geosciences, and the energy management minor. We expect your mentee to reach out to you once you’ve matched. Then, it is up to you to build your relationship virtually or in person.
Networking Opportunities with UT StudentsThe KBH Energy Center hosts a series of events each year to help connect students with alumni and industry professionals. Energy students and executives can meet and network at the Industry Night reception, Distinguished Lecture speaker series, the Women in Energy reception, and more.
