Latinx Theatre Initiative
Latinx Theatre Initiative at The University of Texas at Austin is a group of students, regardless of race or ethnicity, that gather together in order to promote and perform Latino and Hispanic stories as well as build community with other students at UT Austin and the greater Austin area. Emphasis is placed on shared collaboration amongst all members in an effort to inspire emerging leaders in the performing arts.
Undergraduate Advisory Council (UAC)
The Undergraduate Advisory Council (UAC) for the Department of Theatre and Dance is made up of a group of students from across the department dedicated to bridging the gap between faculty and students by serving as a liaison between the two. In addition, the Undergraduate Advisory Council values creating a space that is both welcoming to all who enter Winship and strives to lift up student work.
The UAC also plans engagement events, including Convocation in the fall semester. Members frequently work with faculty, administrative staff and fellow Theatre and Dance students in order to create opportunities for collaboration, creativity and growth.
