Statement from Chairman Powell and Chancellor Cigarroa on Texas Senate and House Resolutions regarding President Powers

It is extremely fitting that on this President’s Day, the Texas House and Senate honored Bill Powers, the president of The University of Texas System’s flagship institution – UT Austin.

We are grateful to members of the House and Senate for recognizing President Powers for his leadership and efforts to make UT Austin America’s finest public research university.

We are proud of UT Austin - its faculty, students and staff - and we are proud of its president and his efforts to implement the UT System’s Framework for Advancing Excellence. We are glad to partner with President Powers in building and protecting a university of the first class for the state of Texas.
