Lewis and Clark. Watson and Crick. Gates and Allen. Often, before we can discover new solutions, technologies, or even worlds, we must first find a partner in our exploration. For great universities, such collaborations are vital not only in the academic realm, but also in the surrounding community. At UT Arlington, partnerships between researchers from multiple disciplines are yielding innovations to make life easier for the elderly population. Meanwhile, ambitious construction projects are energizing the campus and downtown Arlington and providing spaces where the community can gather. And in local school districts, students and faculty are participating in a variety of outreach programs designed to help young learners reach their potential. By forging such diverse and multifaceted alliances, UT Arlington is discovering new ways to change the trajectory of thousands of lives each year.
