We’re excited to invite your students, faculty and staff to this year’s Texas Tribune Festival, a weekend of debate, discussion and dialogue featuring some of the biggest names in the world of politics and public policy. Over three days on the University of Texas at Austin campus, more than 200 speakers will dive into the state’s and nation’s most pressing issues: public and higher ed, immigration, health care, transportation, energy, the environment, criminal justice and – new this year – government transparency.

This year’s expanded Student Programoffers exciting meet-and-greets with Festival speakers and top-level sponsors, exclusive student-only events (including a live TribCast recording), countless networking opportunities and, of course, free food! 

Each student or educator who registers for the Festival at the discount rate of $50 will receive a Festival badge granting them full access to the Trib Fest programming, including noteworthy panels on higher and public education, as well as access to the student lounge and social events. If a $50 ticket is out of reach, students can volunteer for a 4-hour shift at the Festival and attend for free!
