The University of Texas System Chancellor Francisco G. Cigarroa, M.D. , issued the following statement today (Feb. 7) regarding a Brownsville Herald article in which comments were made about a possible reduction in force involving employees at UT Brownsville.
“The comments in today’s Brownsville Herald concerning a possible reduction in force at The University of Texas at Brownville are premature and very unfortunate. The UTB/TSC transition teams have yet to formally discuss details concerning any possible reduction in force at the institutions. The university and surrounding community should know the UT System remains firmly committed to a smooth transition process that keeps the best interests in mind of the entire UTB community.”
