The Office of Talent, Culture, and Engagement was created in the Fall of 2022 to operationalize UTA’s Strategic Theme of People and Culture. TCE’s main goal is supporting the employee life cycle (i.e., recruiting, hiring, onboarding, training, employee relations, and administration of benefits), while working with campus leadership, staff, faculty, and others to further develop a culture where the values of TCE are embedded in the culture and operations of the university.
