Equitable access to opportunity benefits us all. Equitable access is the foundation to eradicating generational poverty, closing the city’s skills gap, and filling the recruiting pipelines of Austin’s businesses with pools of diverse, talented applicants. Equity begins with access to education and Austin’s continued investment in Huston-Tillotson University.

" It is my continued hope, wish, and vision that Austin will embrace the jewel in its violet crown — Huston-Tillotson University. An investment in my students is an investment in the future of our city and beyond."

Dr. Colette Pierce Burnette, Huston-Tillotson University President and CEO
