Launched in 2019, the Longhorn TIES (Transition, Inclusion, Empower, Success) initiative seeks to enhance the student experience for students who identify as being on the autism spectrum or neurodiverse through advocacy, connections and training starting with the new student orientation process and continuing throughout the student’s academic career. This initiative will also serve as a resource for UT Austin faculty and staff. Longhorn TIES is housed within New Student Services.
We provide individualized coaching services, academic support, social and career-related supports, social events and much more! To learn more about the program elements, visit the Program Elements page.
If you are interested in learning more about the support services provided or want to schedule a drop-in meeting with a Longhorn TIES Coach, fill out the Longhorn TIES Qualtrics form. Once the form is submitted, you will be directed to the Longhorn TIES Microsoft Booking page to schedule a meeting.
Students interested in receiving services through this initiative must identify as being a UT Austin undergraduate student on the autism spectrum or neurodiverse. Students do not have to have register with Services for Students with Disabilities to access this support service.
