Board of Visitors

The University of Texas at Austin McDonald Observatory and Department of Astronomy Board of Visitors is a supporters' group for the Texas Astronomy Program. It includes business people, educators, attorneys, scientists, artists, architects, and engineers, from throughout Texas and the United States.

The Board of Visitors has accomplished great things for the Texas astronomy program, from funding chairs, professorships, and fellowships, to helping with private contributions to build the magnificent Hobby-Eberly Telescope, the Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment, the Frank N. Bash Visitors Center, and much more. In addition, the Board of Visitors provides annual discretionary funding for the observatory director and department chair.
