TEXAS WOMAN’S UNIVERSITY
SCHOOL OF PHYSICAL THERAPY
The TWU School of Physical Therapy has a Friends Program for persons who wish to support the mission of the School. Alumni, former faculty, patients who have benefitted from physical therapy, health, and business leaders in the community have always contributed to the success of the School. The Friends Program allows the School to conduct activities that are not funded by the state. Recent activities included a reception at the annual meeting of the American Physical Therapy Association where faculty and students networked with leaders of the APTA and Research Conferences in Houston and Dallas which highlighted presentations by students and keynote addresses by nationally recognized researchers in physical therapy. Other activities supported by the School include student attendance at state and national professional events, as well as faculty support for development in unique areas of study or research.
Friends may be so designated for any level and type of gift to the School, including time, expertise, and monetary donations. Three additional levels of support include Sponsor, Partner, or Sustaining Partner. In addition, opportunities are available for naming of special events held at the School, such as Research Conferences and Lectureships. Friends are provided with information on the accomplishments of students and faculty, facilities updates, and curricular changes. TWU and the School of Physical Therapy want to recognize the contributions of persons who support the School and its programs.
