A House Divided: The Dana Center's Impressive Collegiate Mix
The Dana Center is a very proud part of The University of Texas at Austin. One might expect that our offices would, accordingly, be a sea of burnt orange. Our staff of 80+ professionals is, however, not all Longhorns. In fact, given a different context, some of them might almost be considered enemies. Under the Dana Center roof brew some of the deepest and longest-standing collegiate rivalries, and we like to wear our allegiances on our proverbial sleeves.
In observance of college football season kicking off this weekend, we decided to have a little fun and show off the array of colleges and universities that we call "home."
Working together at the Dana Center are Miners, Horned Frogs, Skyhawks, Aggies, Jaguars, Rams, Buffaloes, Comets, Vikings, Cavaliers, Bearkats, Golden Bears, and many, many Longhorns, just to name a few.
Taking a walk around the Dana Center offices quickly reveals where our loyalties focus. Desks and walls are dotted with team paraphernalia, diplomas, and knick-knacks from schools across the United States.
In all, while the majority opinion at the Dana Center is, certainly, that the UT Longhorns are the bees-knees, the vast range of institutions from which we have collectively emerged is a point of pride for all of us.
In fact, we believe our diversity (even down to the schools we attended) is a point of strength as we continue our work to dismantle barriers in mathematics and science education for all students.
