I am privileged to be part of the UT Austin community. 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 support from 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, and the diversity of people and ideas that make this campus a driver of change.
