As an urban-serving university, we take very seriously our responsibility to not only develop and deliver knowledge, but also to transform it, to ensure that what we do adds to the intellectual, technological, economic, and socio-cultural well-being and advancement of the region, state, and nation. While being focused on ensuring student success as evidenced through national recognition and affordability of education through our commitment to developing open educational resources, our faculty also are enhancing the state-of-the-art in hypersonics, pavement testing, gerontology, and post-disaster response and recovery.

I’d like to invite you to read more, to visit us, to meet our distinguished faculty and tremendous students, and to learn how UTA continues to lead in serving our students, engaging with the community, and playing a vital role in addressing the current and future needs of our state—today, and every day.
