Dear UGS community,
It is with great pleasure that I write to announce the reappointment of Brent Iverson as dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies, effective Sept. 1, 2019.
This spring, I charged a committee to conduct a thorough review of Dean Iverson's contributions as dean. Based on the committee's report, it was clear he has provided committed leadership to the school, the university, and the broader community.
His contributions as a leader are too numerous to list, but these are a few of his key accomplishments. He has supported thousands of students as they began their education in UGS and have gone on to graduate from every undergraduate college and school at UT. Through collaboration with faculty across disciplines, the university provided over 100,000 seats in Signature Courses and over 1,000,000 seats in courses with one or more flags.
Dean Iverson is a widely respected advocate for undergraduate education and champion for the teaching mission of UT Austin. Both President Fenves and I are thankful for his committed leadership.
Please join me in congratulating Dean Iverson on his continued role at UT Austin as dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies.
Executive Vice President and Provost
The University of Texas at Austin
