Imagine running a marathon with only a week’s worth of training.

Sure, you might jog a few miles here and there in the months before the race, but you really only get down to brass tacks just before the big day. Beads of cold sweat drip down your face the moment you step up to the starting line. You try to clear your head, but it’s too groggy from all the late-night tossing and turning. Why didn’t you take the time to train? How will you ever reach the finish line?

The University of Texas at Austin is — and always has been — a university for the people of Texas. Whether we are teaming up with community organizations to tackle health care issues, bring the arts to underserved areas or solve environmental problems, we take seriously our mission of service.

The university has a rich tradition of working with communities across the state through collaborative activities and programs that involve our faculty, staff and students. Such partnerships are mutually beneficial to the university and the community. Not only are university resources shared with communities, but community knowledge and experiences are shared with the university, helping improve learning and scholarship.
