Government Relations

Mission Statement

The mission of the University of Texas at Arlington’s (UTA) Office of Government Relations is to oversee strategic engagement with federal, state, and local governments, administrative agencies, and community organizations to advance the priorities of the entire campus community.

The Office of Government Relations operates as the primary liaison between UTA and all executive and local levels of elected bodies on issues relating to budget, research funding, and policy issues affecting the university.

The Government Relations team works with UTA leadership, faculty, staff, and students to communicate the goals and needs of the campus by enriching the understanding of the role higher education plays with federal, state, and local constituencies.
