UT Body Project

Have you ever felt insecure or uncomfortable in your body? If yes, know you are not alone. It is common for women to internalize an unrealistic appearance ideal, which can lead to low self-esteem and negative thoughts and behaviors. Ready to break free? The Body Project is here for you.

The University of Texas at Austin is excited to offer The Body Project through a collaboration between the Longhorn Wellness Center and Counseling and Mental Health Center.  

The Body Project is designed to help female-identifying college students resist cultural pressures to conform to the appearance-ideal standard of beauty, reduce their pursuit of unrealistic bodies, and empower them to create and affirm positive body image.

The program consists of four 1 hour and 15 minute small-group sessions held once a week. Each group will have about 8-10 students and will be facilitated by trained peer educators. The groups are fun, empowering, and highly interactive.

Apply for the Spring 2021 cohort by 8 pm March 10th. Sessions will be Thursday's from 3:30 to 4:45 p.m. the weeks of 3/25, 4/1, 4/8, 4/15.
