Our dreams for students

At almost every event that is hosted at UTB, our visitor’s first encounter is with our University Ambassadors. Students that are chosen for this honor represent all of the ideals and dreams that we have for our students.

They are critical thinkers who have attained literary, communication and computational skills that make them adaptable in an ever-changing multicultural environment. Their global and research experiences strengthen their appreciation of a broad liberal arts education and their ability to be collaborative, civically engaged citizens committed to their community. They are respectful, honest, ethical, questioning, independent thinkers and voters who have high objectives focused on quality and who care about the environment, its health and the health and wellness of themselves and others.

At UT Brownsville we not only strive to challenge our students to master their academic disciplines, but also to apply their intellect to the practical challenges of life. I am very proud of the quality of our student body and the Renaissance alumni we have produced, and I am honored to serve as President of such a dynamic and vibrant university.
