The Heman Sweatt Center (Sweatt Center) is a faculty-led student organization consisting of professors, administrators, graduate, and undergraduate students committed to creating community and honoring the legacy of Heman Marion Sweatt. The Sweatt Center intentionally ensures that consistent action is being taken to uplift and advance its members. Being on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin—home to world-class faculty, first-rate research facilities and nationally recognized athletics—we have access to plentiful resources and are forever dedicated to using them for our members’ benefit. Some of our premier initiatives include:

Power Hour

Weekly empowerment meetings with free food, guest speakers, and more are held on Mondays in the Gordon White Building (GWB MPR).

Education Abroad

With programs in alternating years between Cape Town, South Africa, Ghana, and Oxford, England, study abroad courses allow students to survey history and explore the similarities and differences between their host country and the U.S., while also gaining valuable internship experiences.
