Embracing the nontraditional

Embracing the nontraditional

As UT strives to create a various and inclusive neighborhood, it’s important to acknowledge and have fun the contributions of nontraditional college students. These college students — starting from dad and mom, veterans, older college students, amongst others — deliver a wealth of enriching life experiences and views that enrich our campus.

Whereas nontraditional college students make vital contributions to campus life, in addition they face distinctive challenges that may influence their educational success. These challenges can embody monetary constraints, restricted entry to help companies and problem balancing educational obligations with vital obligations.

By highlighting the experiences of nontraditional college students, we are able to start to interrupt down boundaries and create a extra inclusive and supportive neighborhood for all college students.
