Our fall 2012 issue of Orange & White provides a taste of the current momentum at UTB as we begin our new chapter as a standalone university.
During the formative years of the partnership, the university produced an internationally-recognized chess team and produced impactful research in gravitational wave astronomy and biomedicine. UTB earned prestigious national accreditations in business, counseling, engineering physics, computer science and music. It has graduated 33,000 students and created pathways for graduates to earn professional and medical degrees and launch into careers.
Just as our students are evolving, so is the university. While teaching and molding the students of today, we are boldly planning for the students of 2050. The task before us is to design a vision that takes advantage of the dedication and experience of faculty and staff, opportunities in new technologies for teaching and learning, and the thinking of national leaders in education.
Your support, as we launch UTB 2.0, is gratifying. With your help, UTB will become a stronger university at a time when affordability, accountability and ingenuity are the foundation and the expectation.
