Alumni & Giving

Welcome, Plan II Honors alumni! We would love to hear from you as you make your way beyond the Forty Acres. You will always be a part of Plan II, so we hope you'll stay connected with us.

Let us know if you've moved or changed your contact information. You can update your alumni information here to stay connected with program and college updates. 

Every fall and summer we send an email newsletter with program updates and news items from our students, faculty, and alumni community. 

Please keep your email address up-to-date if you'd like to receive the Alumni Newsletter. You can update your information here

Have some exciting news you want to share in the alumni newsletter? A new publication? Send to planiialumni@austin.utexas.edu.

We send occasional emails with information about alumni events, including our fall tailgate, lectureships, guest speakers, and thesis symposia.

Please keep your email address updated to receive these emails. You can also stay up-to-date on program information through the News & Events section of our website, or by following the Plan II Honors Facebook page and Instagram account.

Fall 2022 Alumni Events will be posted in late July.

Plan II Career Connections Program

The Career Connections program (formerly the "Alumni + Juniors Career Connections Program") is a mentoring program that connects current Plan II students with alumni mentors. The program pairs students with alumni who work in occupations or industries of interest to them. Mentors & mentees meet once per semester - or more, as desired - over the course of one academic year.

Interested in being a Plan II alumni mentor for the 22-23 academic year? Let us know!

HookedIn

Plan II graduates can connect with fellow alumni and current students through the University's free online networking platform HookedIn. By creating a profile on HookedIn you can:

  • Connect - Get plugged into a network of Longhorns working in every industry. Learn from their experience and build your resume.
  • Give back - Introduce, hire, and mentor new graduates of The University of Texas.
  • Grow - Leverage the power of Longhorn Nation and take the next big step in your career.

Once you have created a profile, search in the Groups link in the left side menu for the Plan II Honors Program subgroup. There, you can connect and make posts exclusively for the Plan II community. You can also join the College of Liberal Arts group or other colleges with which you have an affiliation.

Students and alums can both offer and seek career mentoring via HookedIn. Use the "HookedIn Mentoring" link on the left sidebar to seek informal mentoring opportunities from fellow alumni. When creating your profile, you can also indicate what mentoring help you are available to offer, both to fellow alumni and to our current students. 

Recruiting Plan II Students & Alumni

We'd be delighted to share your employment or internship opportunity with the Plan II student & alumni community. Firms or individuals interested in interviewing/hiring Plan II Honors students or graduates must first contact and make arrangements through one of two offices:

  • Liberal Arts Career Services
    (LACS) staff is dedicated to helping employers promote and manage recruiting programs to fill a variety of hiring needs. As part of the LACS commitment to your search for top talent, LACS offers job and internship posting services and a complete on campus interviewing program. 
  • RecruitUT
    The University of Texas at Austin offers comprehensive services to our employers, from campus-wide to college-specific recruiting.

After arrangements are made through LACS or RecruitUT and the position is posted with one of these offices, the prospective employer may notify Plan II Honors of the job posting and/or interviewing event details.

  • Send the information in an email to Plan2News, with the subject "Plan II Newsletter submission."
  • Provide details about the job posting, with a link or email contact for additional information.

Plan II will then publicize the job information in the Plan II weekly email newsletter and social media to current Plan II students, and to alumni via HookedIn. 

Due to both UT policies and EEO guidelines/laws, Plan II will not schedule or host information sessions or interviews.

Giving to Plan II

Support from our alumni is critical to the ongoing success of the program. Gifts from alumni directly support the education of Plan II students through scholarships and grants by funding opportunities such as peer mentoring, career week, and internships.

There are many ways to support Plan II. One-time gifts or monthly/annual pledges can be easily made online through UT's secure online giving portal.

Larger gifts such as endowments or estate gifts can be arranged through the College of Liberal Arts Development office
Gifts of any size are deeply appreciated and go a long way in sustaining the mission of Plan II Honors. Thank you!
