The President's Thoughts
Dr. Karbhari reflects upon UTA happenings in his new blogposts on Mav Milestones. In the first entry, he discusses his keynote address at the annual Immigrant Journey Awards. His speech reminds us of the impact immigrants have had on our society and highlights the rich diversity of UTA's student population. In his second post, Dr. Karbhari celebrates Coaches Scott Cross and Krista Gerlich. Both have elevated UTA basketball to the national level and received contract extensions. Check out Mav Milestones and learn how UTA’s President sees the world.
Join us on Monday at 9:00 a.m. as Dr. and Mrs. Karbhari headline UTA’s presence in the city of Arlington’s Fourth of July Parade , the oldest event in Arlington and one of the biggest Independence Day parades in Texas. The UTA band, spirit squads, and Mr. and Ms. UTA will also be a part of the parade as well as a few of the Formula SAE Racing Team cars. It promises to be a great event celebrating our nation's birth and an opportunity to build deeper community relationships. Bring the kids and enjoy the festivities, fun, and floats!
UTA is recognized by Winds of Change, a publication of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, as one of the top 200 colleges for Native Americans in part because of the work of the Native American Student Association led by Stephanie Vielle and Harold Rogers. Both came to UTA because of the support and opportunities the University offered Native American students. From the annual Powwow to hosting the Native All-Star Football Classic, which takes place this weekend, UTA is a school of choice because of its diverse culture.

Admission is free.
The much anticipated opening of UTA’s Career Development Center is growing nearer. On August 23, Dr. Karbhari and a host of others will officially cut the ribbon on the renovated building space. Current students and alumni are welcome to use the resources of the development center to learn how to further their careers.
As part of the Texas Rangers University Days, UTA students, alumni, and faculty and staff are invited to take in a baseball game at Globe Life Park. More details about game time and other UTA-specific information will be determined later this summer.
