The American Concrete Institute (ACI) Student Chapter at the University of Texas at Austin has been named an ACI Excellent University for 2015. The ACI Award for University Student Activities identifies and recognizes universities that are actively involved in ACI activities and other concrete-related activities.

ACI is a leading authority and resource worldwide for the development and distribution of consensus-based standards, technical resources, educational and training programs, certification programs, and proven expertise for individuals and organizations involved in concrete design, construction, and materials. ACI members consist of engineers, architects, consultants, contractors, educators, material suppliers, equipment suppliers, owners, and students.

The UT Austin chapter is led by officers Fred Aguayo, Saif Al-Shamaisani, Racheal Lute, Trevor Williamson, and Faculty Advisor Dr. Kevin Folliard.

There are 93 ACI student chapters and nearly 20,000 members throughout over 120 countries. Only 22 universities have been chosen to receive this award for 2015.

Recipients of the ACI Award for University Student Activities will be recognized during the 2016 ACI Spring Concrete Convention and Exposition in Milwaukee, WI and will be featured in Concrete International magazine.
