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.
Coming soon: The Rooted Collective’s comprehensive proposal to establish a center at UT Austin to support undocumented and immigrant students.
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.
