Moody Media Scholars for Social Change Projects - 2021

Past and Current Student Activism at the University of Texas at Austin

Created by the inaugural cohort of the Moody Media Scholars for Social Change, this website aims to serve as an archive and informational resource about past and present student activism at the University of Texas at Austin. On this website, you’ll find information about the history of student activism at UT Austin (including protests around the Vietnam War, segregation/integration and more), current moments of activism and student organizing (including the Eyes of Texas, affirmative action, graduate student protests and more) and lastly, ways you (as a UT student, faculty or staff member) can get involved in community organizing and activism at this university.

In creating this website, we hope to encourage UT Austin community members to learn about and get involved in activism, amplify activist voices as best we can, and to move toward necessary change on campus.
