We are ROOTED. We envision new futures for immigrant students at UT Austin.

Welcome to the Rooted initiative!

We are a collective of students, alumni, staff, and faculty members at The University of Texas at Austin advocating for equitable access to resources through the establishment of a center for students who are undocumented, have temporary status, and/or are from mixed-status families.

We stand firm in the idea that migration is not a question of temporal being, but rather of seeking permanency and grounding. We are a community sustaining one another, and much like roots we hold one another stronger together to build a foundation for our collective liberation.

Envisioning the Center

We strive for UT Austin to join the dozens of universities around the country by creating an on-campus center dedicated to equity for immigrant students.
