The President’s Award for Global Learning prepares UT Austin students to lead in an interconnected world by providing them with opportunities to conduct research and innovate while building international partnerships with peers, industry experts and academic leaders. The award also gives faculty a new way to engage with our students and a chance to expand their scholarship and research networks — on campus, across disciplines and in countries around the world.
By working together, students and faculty design, develop and carry out projects that put our motto — “What Starts Here Changes the World” — into action and deepen UT Austin’s global impact. The university is grateful to the International Board of Advisors for creating this visionary program and for their ongoing support. I encourage students and faculty to take advantage of this unparalleled opportunity to address the most pressing challenges facing our world today.
Jay Hartzell, University of Texas at Austin/Interim President
