Texas Civic Impact Council (TCIC), PEAC's UT Austin chapter, brings together students from UT's undergraduate and graduate colleges to collectively address prevalent issues in the student and Austin communities. This program will be a bridge for UT's students to connect ideas with action in an effort to lead student progress on city-wide issues as well as a COVID-19 response. Impact areas include but are not limited to health + medicine, technology, education, financial support, housing, transportation and environment.
Their current advisory board consists of the World Economic Forum's Global Shapers, Dr. Michael Hole, Lesley Robinson, and Ashley Jennings. For more information and the application, click below. Applications close soon!
In light of the recent coronavirus pandemic and the impact it has had on Austin's underprivileged populations, TCIC in collaboration with UT's community partners will be dedicating one of its annual projects to a COVID-19 response focusing on health, education, COVID-19 awareness, and financial support.
