Back-to-School Breakfast

Welcome to our 2022 College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NSM) Back-to-School Faculty and Staff Appreciation Breakfast!

Back-to-School Faculty and Staff Appreciation Breakfast

This popular event, held every summer, is open to our more than 1,300 faculty and staff as a way to thank them for their hard work and to get them energized to start the school year.

Because of COVID-19, it has been TWO YEARS since our last breakfast, but we’re ready to come back bigger and better than before.

There are a couple of components to this breakfast—not only are there breakfast goodies of all kinds, but there’s also the highly-anticipated drawing for prizes! Our valued NSM employees can enter to win anything from a date night dinner to a family afternoon at the Houston Zoo.

At NSM, it’s important to us that our funds go to furthering our students’ educational successes, as well as to the critical and ground-breaking research of our brilliant faculty.

As you can imagine, putting on an event of this magnitude can be quite costly. Our goal is to get the majority of everything donated. In the years we’ve hosted this event, the Houston community has been extremely generous. In the past, we’ve garnered donations from the following companies:
