Advisory Council

Jerry Long, DDS

The UTSD Advisory Council serves as ambassadors for the school at the direction of the Dean. Their work includes making our alumni and friends more aware of the daily events at UTSD, cultivating and encouraging their peers to participate, and to lead by example with their gifts of time and treasure. Advisory Council members agree to serve a three-year term, with an additional three year term available at the invitation of the Dean. This year’s Council membership represents more than $7 million dollars in personal giving to UTSD, not including the gifts they have assisted in obtaining during their time on the Council.

The Chair of the Advisory Council S. Jerry Long, DDS, of Missouri City, Texas. Dr. Long has been instrumental in the success of the school’s development efforts, dating back to his participation as a contributor to the Alumni Association Fund in the 1980’s. Along with his contributions to the school, he has served in a leadership capacity continuously since 2006, when he volunteered to Co-Chair the school’s Open to Health Initiative. His term of service as Chair ends in the summer of 2014.
