LIBERAL ARTS ASSOCIATED STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS (LAASOs)

The LAASO Program stands as a designation providing admitted student groups with the opportunity to receive higher tier funding from the College of Liberal Arts. Eligible organizations must strengthen the cultural, professional, and/or academic environment of the college and its students to earn and maintain the distinction. The resulting connections further the mission of a well-rounded liberal arts education that starts here and changes the world.


HOW TO APPLY

Applications will be reviewed by the Liberal Arts Council on a rolling admission format throughout the academic year. To apply, please complete the application on this page and send to College Ambassador at plbutler@austin.utexas.edu and Administrative Director Delaney Tubbs at admndirector.utlac@gmail.com. If you have any questions about becoming a LAASO, send us an email, or come to one of our General Assembly meetings to find out what we're all about.
