Dear Colleagues,

Tomorrow, I invite you to hear personally from UT System leadership regarding the announcement made today about the plan to establish a new university for the Rio Grande Valley.

UT System Board of Regents Chairman Gene Powell and Chancellor Francisco G. Cigarroa will lead a town hall meeting at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 7 in The Arts Center. Please join UTPA President Robert S. Nelsen and me to share in the conversation about the bold new plan the Regents approved today to establish this new university with a medical school in our Rio Grande Valley, The University of Texas of the Americas.

If you cannot make it to campus, you may access the meeting online at
