Although the UT System Competitiveness Initiative offers a shared goal of building and enhancing competitiveness in the science, technology, engineering, math, and medical/health fields, the nine academic and six health institutions that make up the UT System have chosen different paths to success.
Below are examples of some of the programs, incentives, and partnerships that UT System institutions are using to help build a stronger future for all of us.
