Our Vision & Mission

Our Vision

Our Vision

A higher education community made strong through shared values and high-impact relationships. Our vision reflects our roots as the credit union established in 1936 to serve faculty and staff of The University of Texas at Austin. Of course, our family has since grown to include other fine universities, their students, and other entities that share an appreciation for higher education. Our vision further recognizes education as a key economic engine driving growth and well-being of the vibrant Texas community in which we live.

Our mission

To provide for the well-being of our Members. 

Note that no references to finance or banking appear in this statement; that is by design.  At its core, UFCU serves a broader purpose that emphasizes concern for people.

People matter! The Member is at the heart of all we do.
