Alumni and Friends

Annual Giving

Everyone has causes that are close to their hearts. We hope that preserving a high-quality, affordable education for University of Houston-Victoria students is close to yours. Please consider adding UHV to the list of charities that you support each year. Your gift directly supports UHV students and faculty who are making a difference in the world.

Annual donations from alumni, parents, employees, students and friends are the backbone of giving at the university. Donations ranging from $1 to $10,000 a year enhance hundreds of programs and improve student life. Your yearly contributions provide meaningful and reliable support for UHV.

Jaguar Spirit Cord

If you are graduating from UHV this year, don’t miss your chance to join the tradition of giving back to UHV and wearing a Jaguar Spirit Cord during commencement to demonstrate your pride and affinity for UHV.  It’s an excellent way to celebrate your time at UHV and help support UHV’s alumni outreach and engagement efforts.
The Jaguar Spirit Cords are red, black and gold, and worn during the commencement ceremony along with any other graduation cords.  We hope to see you all wearing yours at commencement to show you are proud to be a UHV graduate.  Show the world your Jaguar pride!
