On Wednesday, the UT System Board of Regents approved design development plans and appropriated funding for the Administrative and Faculty Support Services building, which will replace the recently demolished Trinity House.
The 57,000-square-foot building will be home to Faculty Affairs, the Center for Research on Teaching and Learning Excellence, University Analytics, the Office of Global Education, and the Office of Information Technology.

- Master of Science in learning analytics, College of Science
