The pursuit of ever higher levels of excellence remains uppermost in our minds and the results of this are seen by the designation by the National League for Nursing of our College of Nursing and Health Innovation as one of only 10 Centers of Excellence across the nation, and the recruitment of our 6th member of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine. From the establishment of a new master’s degree in public health—the only one in our state to focus on urban health—to the successful growth of our packaging program, which integrates a student’s passion for art with career skills that make them attractive for the workforce, to our work on unmanned vehicles in collaboration with a corporate partner, and our faculty’s focus on enhancing decision making for infrastructure projects, UTA remains laser-focused on creating the future for Texas and our nation—today, and every day.

I’d like to invite you to read more, to visit us, meet our distinguished faculty and tremendous students, and learn how UTA is continuing its drive to better enable the success of our students and simultaneously enhance our impact on the communities we serve.
