What We Stand For

Our goal is to create a supportive community among the diverse graduate students and postdocs at The University of Texas at Austin.

Our Pillars

  • Supportive Community: We meet regularly each semester and coordinate social activities to promote interaction to help students connect from students and faculty from different departments

  • Professional Growth: We coordinate seminars and workshop to provide additional tools for graduate students success. We also share with our members and promote different events from UT and other organizations.

  • Leadership and Outreach: We are a group of talented students that love to contribute in different areas and give back to the community beyond our research interests. We provide opportunities for students to organize events and collaborate with other organizations on campus
