Launched in 2016, Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) is a comprehensive, national and community-based process to plan for and bring about transformational and sustainable change, and to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism. It seeks to unearth and jettison the deeply held, and often unconscious, beliefs created by racism – the main one being the belief in a hierarchy of human value. Learn more.
The TRHT Campus Centers received an initial award to develop and implement visionary plans to uproot the conscious and unconscious biases and misbeliefs that have exacerbated racial violence and tension in American society. Learn more.
Austin Community College selected a site at its Rio Grande Campus to serve as the college's TRHT Campus Center. It will be located in a storefront facility of the Rio Grande Campus parking garage.
Planning for the development of the ACC TRHT Campus Center is currently underway. During development, the college will continue to host engagement opportunities with the community including regular conversations and monthly gatherings of students, families, and community leaders.
