Four over-arching themes are complemented by six guiding aspirations that, when fulfilled, will enable UTA to become the intellectual heart of the community and a leader in the discovery, integration, and application of knowledge. The plan also features six operational priorities and eight Maverick imperatives. When examined within the context of our guiding aspirations, these building blocks will help the University chart a course of action and define our future while following the principles of community.
