The Community Classroom
The Community Classroom is a series of courses offered to community members and residents taught by UT faculty, staff and community partners. These classes are designed to marry theory and practice and to offer a specific skill, knowledge, or expertise to support the work of community members engaging with advocacy/activism efforts, or other community-based work.
The Community Housing Hub
The Community Housing Hub is a consortium of University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) students and faculty, along with Central Texas community members and advocates, dedicated to addressing housing inequity.
The Front Porch Gathering
Designed to activate more than just dialogue, the Front Porch series connects UT research and resources with engaged community organizations and community members to identify strategies, align efforts, and foster collaborative relationships.
Conversations from the Front Porch
