Alumni and Community Engagement

The University’s future successes will be underpinned by the support of our alumni and the vitality of our renewed and future external relationships. We must foster positive alumni and community engagement and create opportunities for people to connect to UTA. We will be able to grow a broader and more vibrant Maverick community through such dedicated efforts.

Our Community

UTA has a vast network of alumni who reach across the globe. Our alumni are business owners, entrepreneurs, innovators, and leaders in their communities. We also have a growing number of relationships with community and business leaders in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and beyond. We are proud to partner with these organizations to serve their needs, support our community, and prepare the workforce they need.

Our Focus

We are focused on our role and responsibility to be a leader and partner in our communities by engaging in purposeful and mutually beneficial partnerships to develop enriched opportunities for both student and community entities. UTA is focusing on a campus-wide corporate engagement strategy as well as assessing our overall community engagement strategy. We aspire to achieve the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification recognizing our impact on the communities we serve.

We are actively working to engage our alumni across Texas and the globe to build meaningful and lifelong relationships with their alma mater. We are developing strategies to increase alumni outreach and expanding our Maverick Network. These efforts are closely tied with our focus on continuing to build our reputation and brand recognition across DFW.
