Community Support

Below are letters from public and civic organizations who support the save the past for the fUTure coalition. If you, or your organization would like to support us, please contact us at savethepastforthefuture@gmail.com

"The demolition of this building would represent an absolute loss for UT’s history. This includes the history of the designers, craftsmen, and laborers who shaped this monumental building; the histories of the countless children and students who learned here and applied that knowledge to build a better Austin; and the powerful history of desegregation that transpired within its walls. We strongly believe that the University should take pride in the stewardship of these legacies and consider deeply what the loss of this building would represent. The University of Texas at Austin has amazing resources dedicated to its athletic programs, and we recognize the priority that they enjoy on the campus. We call on the University to grant similar priority to its historic legacy."

The University of Texas at Austin has amazing resources dedicated to both athletic programs  and the 575 student athletes, and the priority that they represent on campus. 

 

However, we call on The University to grant similar priority to the historical legacy for future generations of Longhorns, and reconsider the demolition of the Steve Hicks School of Social Work.  We encourage The University to explore options for adaptive reuse and sustainable redevelopment. Repurposing the building could not only preserve its historical legacy but also promote environmentally responsible practices in campus development, aligning with The University’s commitment to sustainability.
