Welcome Sanger Center

The School of Undergraduate Studies (UGS) is pleased to welcome its newest addition, the Sanger Learning & Career Center. The Sanger Center has joined with UGS as a welcome partner in the efforts both organizations care about: improving academic performance, bridging the gap between high school and college, and providing early access to career counseling for our undeclared students. The move will make it possible for UGS and the Sanger Center to coordinate and expand services for undergraduates.

Paul Woodruff, Dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies, said, “Aligning the resources of the Sanger Learning and Career Center with the academic initiatives provided by Undergraduate Studies will benefit our students by allowing exciting possibilities for collaboration. The school that was created in 2006 to improve the academic success of UT’s undergraduates seems a perfect home for the Sanger Center.”

UGS oversees the education shared by all undergraduates at the University of Texas at Austin. This includes maintaining a high quality core curriculum for all undergraduate students, offering strategic advising services that help students find quicker paths to degrees that match their academic and career interests, creating a strong first-year experience through small learning communities, and making UT Austin’s many resources more accessible. UGS is also the initial home for students who choose not to select another college or school upon entering the university.
