The motion was added to the agenda Friday and approved in the last portion of the board’s two-day meeting. “We believe that investment in this endeavor is essential for leading American universities and we hope UT Austin will be a model for the best way to provide for scholarship and teaching that will prepare leaders and citizens,” Eltife said in a statement before the board approved the move.The Civitas Institute was officially established less than a year ago with the help of state and system funds totaling $12 million.

After Thursday’s board meeting, Hartzell said the college will work under normal protocols similar to other colleges in the university, including the role of the new college’s board of advisers in the school.
