A Letter from the BCAA President

Dear Fellow Cougar and NEW University of Houston Alumnus,

Welcome to the Bauer College Alumni Association (BCAA).

On behalf of the University and the BCAA Board of Directors, it is with much enthusiasm that I congratulate you on your joyous achievement. Graduating from college is a major life accomplishment, and you should be very proud.

You are now a part of a 235,000 University of Houston Alumni network with up to 60,000 that graduated from Bauer. Your journey does not end with graduation. Your journey is a lifelong class and our alumni association is one heck of a way to make an impact to your journey, to our college and your continued education.

People who are on top of their game all have one thing in common. They all are busy adding value to others in some way. And in adding value to others, they create success in themselves.

I have learned that adding value becomes clearer over time when you get involved and participate in events that align with your personal values, goals and pursuits. The BCAA gives people opportunities to stay mentally active and momentum to keep moving forward toward their personal goals.

The BCAA is composed of 11 committees, including Community Service, Networking Breakfast, Tailgating, and Sponsorships. The committees coordinate events and activities that assist you in remaining involved with the Bauer College by helping you engage, connect, and network with other alumni, students, businesses, and the community.

I would encourage you to participate in our events and also consider becoming part of a committee with the mindset of “What can I offer?” Amazing things happen when you come from an “others first” outlook.

Explore our website to learn more on how to get involved, review our upcoming events, and other great resources about the alumni association.

Our board is always looking for creative and novel ways to strengthen our alumni. To contact me, send an email to

On behalf of the Bauer College Alumni Association, congratulations and Go Coogs!

About the BCAA

The Bauer College Alumni Association (BCAA) is a constituency group of the University of Houston Alumni Association (UHAA). BCAA was established in support of the C. T. Bauer College of Business and the University of Houston. Together, we work to engage alumni, provide quality events and programs, and to support the initiatives set forth by UH President & Chancellor, Dr. Renu Khator.

Our goal is to engage past, present, and future alumni by hosting a variety of events, such as the annual Ted Bauer Golf Tournament and the 9/11 Day of Service at the Houston Food Bank. We host multiple networking breakfasts, happy hours, tailgates and volunteer events. BCAA members also participate in activities like student recruiting, mentoring, and career services events.

BCAA works to build Cougar pride. We believe that the “Bauer Experience” should last a lifetime. This is why we work to engage the Bauer alumni with Houston’s business community, current students, our college, and the University. By making these Cougar connections, we build a community that will work together to help Bauer reach Tier One status.
