University Resource Groups (URGs) provide an organized voice on campus for diverse communities within The University of Texas at Austin. The URGs not only provide a way to communicate the needs of these diverse groups to the campus community, but also celebrate the voices, identities, experiences, and talents of the groups. The URGs also provide leadership training and other professional development, community service opportunities, and celebrations such as an annual potluck for all faculty and staff.
