Bauer Alumni Events

BCAA offers a wide range of events and activities throughout the year. Attend our events; either catch up with old friends, meet new ones, or simply network with fellow alumni and the business community. From frequent networking events to annual golf tournaments, and fundraisers, we offer a variety of events for you and your family - or anything else that sounds fun for Cougars.

Annual Ted Bauer Golf Classic

Our annual Ted Bauer Golf Classic benefits the Bauer Champions Scholarship Campaign at the University of Houston C. T. Bauer College of Business.

Since 2001, the Ted Bauer Golf Classic has provided students at the Bauer College of Business with the opportunity to pursue academic achievement at the collegiate level, by providing them with much needed scholarship funds. This important funding is made possible through the generous donations of Bauer Alumni, friends of the University, and community leaders like you.

Mark your calendar for the 2014 Ted Bauer Golf Classic on May 12th at Champions Golf Club.

Distinguished Leaders Series

Sponsored by Sequent Energy Management, the Distinguished Leaders Series was launched in 2002 with Charles T. “Ted” Bauer, founder and retired chairman of AIM Management Group. The series serves as a forum to connect students and alumni with professionals, most recently with those who are in leadership positions in the energy industry.


Volunteer/Community Service

Make a Difference and volunteer just a few hours of your time and give back to the community, your peers, future students, and the ongoing vitality of the University. There are many ways to contribute - whatever you choose, you will be impacting people’s lives.

Since 2011 we began the annual 9/11 Day of Service at the Food Bank which started with 50 volunteers. We are proud to THANK all of our 500 plus volunteers that attended the 2013 9/11 Day of Service! Our goal for next year is to reach the 700 volunteer mark, so please save the date of September 13, 2014 to volunteer at the Houston Food Bank!

We will post volunteer events on the events calendar as they arise.
