I am honored and privileged to be part of the UT Austin community as the Executive Vice President and Provost. Each day, I am inspired by the ambitious research, scholarship, and creativity of our faculty, the innovative academic work of our students, and the tremendous effort of our staff as we pursue our academic mission. The scale and impact of our academic contributions to the State of Texas, our society and the world cannot be understated. I will continue to support academic excellence across campus, and the diversity of people and ideas that make this campus a driver of change.
