Dear Staff Members,
As president of the university, I want to meet as many of you as I can. To that end, in partnership with the UT Staff Council, I will host lunch meetings to discuss topics of interest with small groups of staff members. I invite you to participate in a lottery to join me for one of these lunches.
The next lunch will be held on Friday, September 28 at 11:30 a.m. The topic for discussion will be campus safety and security. The university has made great strides towards improving the safety of campus since the Texas Department of Public Safety’s assessment in 2016. If you are interested in evaluating our progress thus far and brainstorming ways to further our efforts even more, I encourage you to submit an entry form by September 12.
I have met and worked with many of you since I became president and hope to speak with many more of you about the issues that affect you as UT employees. I plan to host staff lunches periodically throughout the year, so don’t worry if you aren’t selected this time around — there will be more opportunities in the future.
Gregory L. Fenves
