The University of Texas at Austin is currently involved in planning the implementation of federally mandated changes for the reporting of race/ethnicity codes. UT Austin as well as all educational institutions (elementary and secondary schools, two- and four-year colleges and universities) that report data to the federal government are required to use these new race/ethnic codes. The new codes pertain to the reporting of information on both students and employees, through the Department of Education and the Department of Labor.

A FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS page is available on the Executive Vice President and Provost's web site.
