Last week, I finally (and with much gratitude) moved past the public announcements and well wishes around becoming the new president of The University of Texas at Austin and started to settle into the routine of the job … if there is anything “routine” about what we’re doing right now.
During the past few days, Gov. Greg Abbott, the U.S. Secretary of the
Army and our Natural Sciences and Engineering researchers came to campus to open a new robotics lab, where we will collaborate with the U.S. Army Futures Command. We also celebrated UT’s receiving the Seal of Excelencia, presented to only five colleges and universities this year, for our commitment to Latino students.
