This year we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the University of Texas at Brownsville. For its first two decades, The University of Texas at Brownsville partnered with Texas Southmost College in an innovative higher education model that provided students with a seamless transition from certificate programs through doctoral and professional education. The UTB/TSC Partnership invented new processes for articulation between degree programs, made efficient use of scarce resources by reducing redundancy in administrative structures, developed a campus with state-of-the art classrooms and laboratories while respecting its historical heritage and unique needs of the community.
We are now poised to move forward to the next phase of our evolution as an autonomous university with a focus on developing knowledgeable citizens and emerging leaders who are engaged in the civic life of their communities. Our new mission embraces teaching excellence, active inquire, lifelong learning, rigorous scholarship and research in service to the common good.
The new UTB will be made resilient by its history, strengthened by the support of The University of Texas System and inspired by the hopes and spirit of the people it serves.
