As our state continues to face the COVID-19 pandemic and experience historic social transformation, UTA is leading the way. Our students and faculty are fighting the pandemic on the front lines and through cutting-edge research. We are also having open and honest discussions with our students, faculty, and staff about the difficult issues of inequality in our communities and across the nation.

I hope you’ll take the opportunity to read more about the incredible work being done at UTA.
