President William Fannin
Welcome to The University of Texas at Brownsville, a university nationally known for providing quality instruction in a supportive learning environment. Created in 1991 to expand higher education opportunities in the region, UTB has proven to be a place for innovation that is focused on linking the Americas. UTB has strong, nationally-accredited academic programs, an award-winning chess team and a NAIA national championship volleyball team. Recent noteworthy developments include the creation of the Spanish M.B.A. degree and university participation in the successful recruitment of SpaceX to the region.
As we move toward next year’s opening of The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, I look forward to working with the campus community, UTRGV Founding President Guy Bailey and our UT System partners to fulfill the vision for this new university. Expanded research, new programs and growth throughout the region are all part of the bright future for higher education in South Texas.
This is an exciting time for UT Brownsville, and whether you are a student, community supporter, faculty or staff member, we invite you to join in the momentum as we enter a new era.
