A Name for the New UT

Last month, the UT System asked for your feedback on possible names for the new UT institution in the Rio Grande Valley. We wanted to hear your comments on five names that had been suggested already, and we asked for additional nominations of names for the new university. The response was overwhelming! Thanks to everyone for their participation and suggestions. The UT System Board of Regents will announce the final name on Thursday, Dec. 12, but the Regents first wanted to hear from the South Texas community and especially from students, staff and faculty of UT Brownsville and UT Pan American.

Thank you for being a part of the extraordinary journey of Project South Texas!
