Since returning to campus, I’ve been meeting with teams across departments and units to learn about the great work happening at UT. I have been inspired and energized by your ideas and desire to work together to achieve our shared goals.
With that in mind, I am hiring a chief of staff to help coordinate and elevate this work. This position will be part of my leadership team and will provide support and coordination for projects and priorities that come through my office. The position posted today, and the search committee will move quickly to fill it. We are doing an internal search—I believe it is important for someone familiar with our campus to serve in this role.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to tell me about the work you and your colleagues are doing. And to those I haven’t met yet, I look forward to learning from you soon. There are great things ahead for our university, and together we will achieve them.
