51st Chancellor's Council Annual Meeting & Symposium
April 27, 2018, Austin, TX

Reimagining the Path to Student Success
Panels featuring experts from UT institutions delved into hard-hitting questions that many people across the nation also are asking: What is the value of higher education, and what are universities doing to make sure students get the support they need to ensure they graduate?

Chancellor’s Council members learned it’s more important than ever to increase the number of college graduates living and working in Texas, not just for the state economy but to maintain America’s competitiveness in the global economy. Furthermore, the basic research that is cultivated at institutions of higher education is what leads to new technologies, new discoveries and new medical treatments that everyone – whether or not they ever step foot on a university campus – benefits from.

And in Texas, the future is now, demographically speaking. As the state changes, so do its students, bringing with them a new set of experiences, strengths and challenges. The path to – and through – college looks very different for today’s students, and to help them succeed, UT institutions must be student-ready as much as students are college-ready. UT institutions are on a mission to reimagine the path to student success.

Chancellor's Council Executive Committee Spring Business Meeting & The 49th Chancellor's Council Annual Meeting and Symposium
May 6, 2016, Austin, TX

On Friday, members of the CCEC and Chancellor's Council joined together to discover how The University of Texas System and the 14 UT institutions are leading the way in addressing the most significant challenges of our generation.

After the business meeting, Chancellor William H. McRaven shared his Quantum Leaps vision with close to 1,000 Chancellor's Council members. Members then learned how UT institutions are making Quantum Leaps by:

  • Bridging the economic divide to enhance the American Dream;
  • Elevating higher education’s role in national security; and
  • Reimagining health care delivery and medical education.

If there's a global challenge, there's a Texas solution.

The day reserved for honoring the life-changing and world-alerting research and initiatives developed at UT institutions drew close to 1,000 donors, many of whom first attended the Spring Business Meeting. 

When it comes to fighting cancer, protecting the world from cyber threats or outsmarting an outbreak, UT institutions have got "the best and the brightest" on the job, Chancellor Bill McRaven stated in his State of the System address.

That's why we truly are the Universe of Texas.
