The Class Challenge

The Class Challenge brings UH Law Center alumni who graduated together in a particular year for two purposes: reconnecting with one another and working to advance our law school to greater achievement by giving. Class year volunteers, deemed “captains,” work with the Law Center’s Office of External Affairs, to reach out to their classmates to raise money for the Law Fund. For classes who graduated in recent years, “section captains” lead the effort to engage newer alumni in charitable participation. LL.M. alumni lead class challenges as well.
