On April 24, UT System Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa, M.D., along with administrators, staff and students from The University of Texas Brownsville and UT Pan American met in South Texas for the UT Rio Grande Valley Spring Symposium.
Based on months of work, members of UTRGV Working Groups presented recommendations to chart a course for the UT System to bring both UTB and UT Pan American together as one university — UT Rio Grande Valley. Working groups tackled three broad themes: academic programs, academic administration and operations administration.
Discussion topics included student engagement and experiential learning; sponsored research, grants and contracts; enrollment management; and business processes.
Guest speakers, including Charles Rutheiser, senior associate for the Center for Community and Economic Opportunity at the Annie E. Casey Foundation, and John Lin, principal at McKinsey & Company, also led talks on topics such as the process of transformation and designing an anchor institution.
