Our focus at The University of Texas at Arlington is on ensuring that we provide transformative educational experiences to our students while simultaneously having a profound impact on the communities we serve. Our online programs ensure that students across our State are able to access the very best education unconstrained by barriers of time, space, and location, and we are proud that these are being acknowledged as among the best return on investment nationally, just as we are that our College of Education was named one of the best teacher prep programs in the nation through an exacting review by the National Council on Teacher Quality. From improving flood control measures in Texas, and creating a vision for the Fort Worth Medical Innovation District, to partnering with the Department of Defense in developing longwave infrared photonic devices and bringing online a unique hypersonic arc-heated wind tunnel, our faculty, staff, and students are at the cutting edge, developing bold solutions that have local and global impact. I hope the examples of the work being done give you a glimpse of the dynamic environment that defines UTA, an institution where current and future issues of import are addressed today—and every day!

I invite you to contact me, and visit us, to learn more about how we are enabling the future—today.
