Apply by March 31: Inaugural Asian American Studies Academy at UT Austin

If you or someone you know are passionate about building a future where Texas students feel bold in their belonging, we invite you to apply for the inaugural Asian American Studies Academy, to be held June 24-27 at the University of Texas at Austin. 

The Asian American Studies Academy, in partnership with Asian Texans for Justice, UT’s Center for Asian American Studies (College of Liberal Arts), and UT’s Department of Curriculum & Instruction (College of Education), is a professional development training intended for all K-12 teachers or student teachers to develop a greater understanding of Asian American history and experiences, with a particular focus on Texas Asian American history. 

This professional development training is generously funded by The Asian American Foundation (TAAF), which covers all expenses — including hotel — for those traveling from outside the Austin area, travel, food, books, and professional development with experts.  

While open to all K-12 teachers, preference is for social studies educators and district coordinators. Pre-service educators are also encouraged to apply. The deadline to apply for this transformative opportunity is Sunday, March 31.  

Have questions about the academy? Learn more on the website or register to attend the remaining virtual Office Hours session on Monday, March 25 at 4-5 p.m. CT,
