About Black Studies at UT Austin

Black Studies at The University of Texas at Austin is a collective endeavor like no other Black Studies initiative in the country. With a history rooted in activism, the group draws its strength from three distinct, yet aligned campus units – the African and African Diaspora Studies Department, the John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies, and the Institute for Urban Policy Research Analysis.  Through cutting-edge policy research, thought-provoking scholarship, and robust arts and cultural programming, Black Studies at UT is a premiere research and education destination for students, faculty, visiting scholars, and the community at large. It’s exciting to think about all of the compelling research, programming, and scholarly pursuits that are happening – every day – at UT Austin.
