Pillars of the Forty Acres

Pillars of the Forty Acres is a recognition program for Student Organizations whose activities embody these Core Values of the University of Texas at Austin. The Core Values form six categories of achievement through which student organizations may receive recognition for their efforts and activities. Organizations receive points for completing various achievements which may earn them recognition status and rewards.

Distinguished Status
To achieve Distinguished Status in one category, organizations must complete 8 points worth of achievements in one Core Value category.

Exemplary Status
To achieve Exemplary Status overall, organizations must achieve Distinguished Status in five of the six Core Value categories.

Student Organizations can log activities that occur between March 1, 2015 and February 29, 2016. Upon completion, organizations will complete and submit a program evaluation and reflection (due by March 14, 2016). Organizations that achieve Distinguished and Exemplary status will be honored on April 19, 2016 at the Evening of the Stars.
