Within Academic Diversity Initiatives and Student Engagement, the Longhorn Center for School Partnerships (LCSP) is a portfolio of programs that provide college readiness services for underrepresented students that include both academic and college awareness initiatives.
The rigorous statewide Pre-College Academic Readiness Programs include ChemBridge, SPURS, and Math Masters. The integrated college awareness programs include Neighborhood Longhorns and the UT Outreach Centers in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Rio Grande Valley and San Antonio. The programs in the Longhorn Center for School Partnerships serve over 10,000 students annually. With representatives on the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement’s Pipeline Council, LCSP plays a role in providing strategic direction for several of the division’s pre-college and college programs that are working collaboratively to create successful pathways for underrepresented students as they pursue higher education.
