Saturday night, March 28, the UT Tower will go black in recognition of Earth Hour – a global event that raises awareness about humanity’s collective impact on the planet and how we can make a positive difference towards its preservation.

Only the clock faces and aircraft warning lights will remain illuminated.

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.

Visit the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement to learn more about community-university partnerships that transform lives.
