Message From The President

The Maverick Way To A Bright Future

I am very pleased to introduce The University of Texas at Arlington's new strategic plan, UTA 2030: Shared Dreams, Bright Future. This plan is a shared collaboration with participation across our University and broader community, through a year of engagement sessions, planning meetings, interviews, focus groups, and feedback from our stakeholders. It is the embodiment of the dreams that our community has shared with me and the bright future we have ahead of us as we realize those dreams. 

Our strategic planning efforts created an important platform for ideas to be shared about what is important for our University, and it also allowed our leaders to evaluate what makes UTA successful as well as what will help us grow stronger as a University and a community. Through input of both internal and external stakeholders, we were able to identify the top priorities for the University we will focus on over the coming years. 

All of the work outlined is guided by our mission, vision, and values. These shape our goals and strategies as we focus on the talents of our students, the research and innovation that supports our robust economic impact, and our culture of community engagement. 

We greatly appreciate the time and effort invested by our students, staff, faculty, and community leaders for their active participation in this process and for sharing their expertise to create this plan. I'm honored to share this next phase of UTA's journey with this incredible community, and to share the path we plan to forge together as we look forward to realizing an even brighter future for UTA and all those whom we impact. 

Together, through our shared dreams, we have a bright future ahead.

Jennifer Cowley, Ph.D
President, University of Texas at Arlington

The goals outlined in this plan, like our dreams, are big and will help us to shine brightly nationally.
