Message from UTRGV President Guy Bailey on hiring timelines for the founding faculty and staff at UTRGV 
Jul 21 2014
I am pleased to be in the Valley at this important time for this new institution. As we look forward to welcoming UTRGV’s first students in Fall 2015, I want to share with you some key events that are shaping UTRGV right now and will shape it further in the next few months.
For instance, we can now better project the timelines for hiring the founding faculty and staff at UTRGV. Officially, these dates are tentative because the hiring process is fluid, but it is my goal to stick as close to these timelines as possible.
