Statement of Support for the University of Texas at Austin Graduate Student Families
The University of Texas at Austin Graduate School recognizes that life events such as becoming a parent can interrupt a student's academic career. The Graduate School is committed to supporting our students. It is our commitment to work with sensitivity and imagination to ensure that all available arrangements are explored by advisers, academic staff, and departmental leaders.
Although it is ultimately the student's responsibility to notify their department in a timely manner of their current family or medical situation, there are a number of resources, policies, and staff at the University to assist during the time of childbirth or a family emergency.
