The Chancellor’s Circle represents a select group of extraordinary donors, united in one purpose—the continued success of Texas Woman’s University. Private support is essential for enhancing the student experience through diverse programming and service-learning opportunities. Support through the Chancellor's Circle also provides crucial resources for scholarships and emergency aid to students in need.

A circle is a universal symbol of unity - every point is the same distance from the center - just as the Chancellor's Circle represents a select group of donors all providing pivotal support for the Chancellor's Circle Fund. Every year, each member makes a contribution of $1,500 or more and receive unique opportunities to have a deeper connection with the Chancellor, senior leaders and the campus in order to see the impact of their gifts.
