It is also among the most innovative in its mission and in the scope and character of the community partnership and public humanities programs that it sponsors. The Institute has gained widespread recognition both for interdisciplinary academic programs that have broadened and deepened collaborative inquiry and collegiality on the UT campus and for civic initiatives that have helped place UT-Austin in the vanguard of a national trend to bring intellectual engagement with local communities from the margins to the center of the public university's mission.
