Dear UT community,
This week, we begin the search for a permanent dean of the Graduate School, whose role will be expanded to also serve as the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
This newly defined role will help the university more effectively define and pursue our academic priorities.
Since June 2015, the university has benefitted tremendously from the unwavering leadership provided by Marv Hackert in his role as interim dean of the Graduate School. At the graduate level, over 40 programs and disciplines are among the top 10 in the country, and I commend him for his commitment and distinguished service to this campus.
Please join me in thanking Marv for his service in this important role.
Executive Vice President and Provost
The University of Texas at Austin
