Description

This series of investigative articles examines increasing racial segregation in student neighborhoods surrounding the University of Texas at Austin. Caused by new land zoning in housing communities near campus, rent costs have been on the rise in neighborhoods near the University at the same time that increasing numbers of low-income students of color have been admitted to the University under new admissions policies. With racial tension rising, the result has been a high density of white and Asian students in expensive neighborhoods near campus, and a high density of black and Latino students in other parts of the city who must travel by bus to reach school.
