Longhorns on the Hill goes online for 2020
Sept. 29–Oct. 1, 2020, from wherever you are.
Since 2015, UT Advocates have been traveling to Washington, D.C. to advocate for UT Austin and higher education to our country’s top decision-makers. While COVID-19 prevents us from traveling to our nation’s capital this year, we’re staying true to the mission of Longhorns on the Hill.
Join us to virtually connect with members of Congress and share the impact of your UT Austin education.
Use your voice to stand with UT.
We’re calling on all of Longhorn Nation to let the world know how important the university is to you, Texas, and the world. Between September 29 and October 1, we'll have four ways you can use your voice and stand with UT:
Share your UT Austin story
Using the hashtag #UTChangedMyWorld, share a photo or a story telling your networks how your UT degree has helped you make an impact and change the world.
Reach out to your member of Congress
Tell decision-makers how UT Austin is fighting back in real-time against COVID-19—and why we need their continued support.
Details on how you can take action coming September 29.
Learn from fellow Longhorns
Throughout the week, tune in to hear UT faculty and alumni discuss the value of their UT educations and the importance of advocacy through a series of live interviews.
