Project South Texas: Advancing Excellence in Education and Health

The University of Texas System leadership is moving forward with a bold, transformational plan to create a new university in South Texas. The plan will result in a single institution that spans the entire Rio Grande Valley, with a presence in each of the major metropolitan areas of Brownsville, Edinburg, Harlingen and McAllen. The new university, which is eligible for funding from the Permanent University Fund, will also be home to a school of medicine.
