The Lady Mavs earned their first ever vote in the USA Today Coaches' Poll and are ranked nationally, building on the mid-major poll success of recent weeks.

Science on Display

"It's an empty parking lot now," writes Dallas Morning News writer Loyd Brumfield. "But sometime in 2018, that vacant lot will become the site of one of the leading science and engineering research centers in the country, University of Texas at Arlington officials say." Brumfield describes how the innovative design, with glass walls opening labs to public view, will facilitate collaborative working environments where science will be "on display", encouraging undergraduates and high schoolers to pursue discovery and progress. The building will bring together UTA's research strengths in engineering, nursing, and science to advance instruction and knowledge in the strategic area of Health and the Human Condition. READ MORE
