The University of Texas at Austin
The 7th Annual Texas Higher Education Symposium will take place August 4-5, 2016, at the University of Texas at Austin. The symposium, sponsored by seven Texas universities (UT-Austin, UTSA, TTU, UNT, SMU, Baylor, and UH), brings together higher education researchers, practitioners, grant funders, and policy-makers to discuss innovative research, policy, and practice focused on this year's theme, "Addressing Inequity through Policy and Praxis." Symposium participants will engage in collaborative roundtables, concurrent sessions disseminating research and practice, as well as panel discussions on campus carry, the Fisher case, and Texas educational policy and research. The symposium is a multi-institutional effort designed to address educational inequity from the perspective of high-quality research to inform practice and policy, nurture the next generation of scholars focused on Texas higher education, and create a space of creative collaboration among higher education stakeholders.
