Academic and Student Services: Welcome
The purpose of Texas Athletics Student Services is to help our student-athletes get the most out of their college career through individualized academic support programs, an involved and dedicated staff -- including counselors, mentors and tutors -- and through special life skills programs developed at The University.
Our aim is to help student-athletes succeed in the classroom, in their sport and in their overall life experience at Texas and beyond. Our staff not only supplements the existing resources on campus, but by meeting with each student-athlete individually and creating a special relationship, our counselors are able to meet their students' specific academic and personal needs and help them become all-around winners -- academically, socially and athletically.
We want to guide our student-athletes in following the UT Honor Code, which professes that the core values of The University of Texas at Austin are learning, discovery, freedom, leadership, individual opportunity and responsibility. Each member of The University is expected to uphold these values through integrity, honesty, trust, fairness and respect toward peers and community.
Therefore, we feel that our responsibility to Longhorn student-athletes is to encourage and develop these values within their daily lives to be long lasting, for "What starts here, changes the world."
Our department has recently moved to a new and updated facility located in the Red McCombs Red Zone at the north end of Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. Here, students have access to their counselors, mentors and tutors, as well as numerous technologically-equipped study rooms, conference and media centers. Student-athletes also enjoy an academic library that houses books from their specific courses and other reference literature to suit their needs. It is our goal to make the student-athlete's learning environment as comfortable and inviting as possible, and our new academic center provides that unlike any other.
