All speakers are well-established in their fields and have a passion to share their insights with you, the next generation of successful Maverick Communication graduates.
Our panels will help prepare you to be engaged in your professional pursuits. Many of our panelists are Department of Communication alumni--a great chance to learn and network from our very own.
In order to be engaged for the next step in your professional journey, you will need to present yourself in the best possible manner. We have resources like professional headshots, resume critiques and professional dress advice to get you on your way. Perhaps you may even land an internship!
Tony Cucolo joined the University of Texas System in May of 2015 as the Associate Vice Chancellor for Leadership Development and Veterans Affairs. His duties include leader development of students and executive leadership as well as providing focused support for all veterans and military affiliated students and employees across the System.
Tony served more than 35 years in the U.S. Army, retiring at the rank of Major General in September 2014. As a General Officer in the last eleven years of his military career, he led Soldiers in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq, led analysis teams in combat zones and on natural disaster recovery efforts such as Hurricane Katrina, and commanded the largest Army base east of the Mississippi. Additionally, during this time period, Tony developed a $35B equipment program for the Army, served as the US Army’s Chief of Public Affairs, and was Commandant of the US Army War College.
Tony earned a bachelor’s degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point and a master’s degree from the University of San Francisco. He and Ginger, his wife of more than 34 years, have three grown children, a devoted Great Dane, and recently made their 27th move to a 80 year old fixer-upper in East Austin.
