Dear School of Social Work community,
It is with great pleasure that I write to announce the reappointment of Luis Zayas as dean of the Steve Hicks School of Social Work, effective Sept. 1, 2018.
Last spring, I charged a committee to conduct a thorough review of Dean Zayas’ contributions as dean. Based on the committee’s report, it is clear that he has provided committed leadership to the school, the university, and the broader community. He has positioned the school as a national leader in social work, service, and addressing contemporary social issues.
Dean Zayas is a widely respected academic leader and scholar, and both President Fenves and I were pleased when he accepted this reappointment. The university is fortunate to have him as a leader on our campus.
Please join me in congratulating Dean Zayas on a job well done and his continued role at UT Austin as dean of the Steve Hicks School of Social Work.
Executive Vice President and Provost
The University of Texas at Austin
