I'm pleased to share my inaugural State of the University address, a celebration of our collective achievements and a glimpse into the exciting future ahead. This past year, we've witnessed the power of the Maverick Factor—your unique determination to shape a better world—fueling our collective successes.
State of the University
The full State of the University address highlights the unique Maverick Factor driving UTA’s achievements and the progress we are making on our strategic themes, from our upcoming UTA People and Culture Survey to student mental health support to the latest news on our ongoing construction projects.
A key highlight in the State of the University address is the announcement of the launch of the RISE 100: Recruiting Innovative Scholars for Excellence faculty hiring initiative. Over the coming years, we plan to welcome 100 new Maverick faculty members to take on some of the biggest challenges of our times. These scholars will drive impact across strategic research areas, aligning with our strategic plan, UTA 2030, set to launch next year.
