About NLP

NLP is a unit within the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE). Established in 1991 by UT Athletics, the NLP is an educational incentive program operated in partnership with the Austin Independent School District (AISD) in 30 Title 1 elementary and middle schools. The program serves economically disadvantaged youth in grades 2 through 8 who are at higher risks of experiencing academic difficulties, including low grade performance, low performance on tests, low school attendance and higher rates of dropping out of school. Athletes from the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics for Men and Women, along with head coaches, university staff and community leaders, present the prizes to the students as incentives to better their individual achievement for each grading period over the course of the academic year.
