The semesterly Student Success Symposium, which celebrates the efforts of the campus community and offers insights into goals for the coming year, is open to faculty and staff across The University of Texas at Austin’s colleges, schools, and units who work to help our students succeed. This conference-style event gives participants the opportunity to discover, discuss, and learn about best practices in student success.
Spring 2021 Symposium Postponed
In light of the recent winter storm and the impacts it has had on our university community, the spring Student Success Symposium, which was originally slated for Friday, March 5, has been postponed. We are excited to work with our campus colleagues to create a space to share research and best practices — please stay tuned for more details, which will be available soon. We will also announce our 2021 Student Success Champion and Advocate award recipients at a future date.
Student Success Advocate and Student Success Champion Awards
The Student Success Advocate award recognizes a faculty and/or staff member who works behind the scenes to impact student success on the Forty Acres. A Student Success Advocate may be creating supporting technology, analyzing data, or in an administrative or faculty role making a difference in the way students achieve success on campus. The Student Success Champion award honors a faculty and/or staff member who has touched the lives of countless students. A Student Success Champion goes above and beyond every day on behalf of students. Winners are selected by committee and receive an award commemorating the honor.
