Message from the Provost


July 7, 2017


Dear Colleagues,

I want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you all for the warm welcome I have been shown throughout my first week as Provost here. I have been fortunate enough to meet with many of you already, and your hospitality has been overwhelming. As I visit with UTA faculty, staff, and students, it is clear that UTA is truly an exciting place to be. The institution has all the necessary elements in place to achieve the goal of becoming the model 21st century urban research university - our enrollment is growing by leaps and bounds; our student body is academically sound and very diverse; and our campus is situated in a thriving and dynamic metroplex with strong global connections. My approach to achieving our goals is to build on the tradition of excellence at UTA by fostering an environment of communication and collaboration across campus. I am proud to be a member of the UTA community and look forward to many opportunities to work together as we continue to set new standards of excellence and access at UTA.
