Annual Faculty Authors Reception


At UT Austin, the impact of the scholarship of our faculty book authors is outstanding. To celebrate the work of UT Austin’s faculty and provide an opportunity to learn more about the breadth of scholarship taking place on campus, Provost McInnis hosts the inaugural Annual Faculty Authors Reception to showcase published works. The first annual event took place on January 10, 2019.

The Annual Faculty Authors Reception will take place every January to celebrate the books published during the previous calendar year. All faculty members will be notified during the fall semester when submissions are open for the January reception.
