May 30, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce will host a Public Affairs Luncheon featuring keynote speaker Guy Bailey. The UTRGV president will present a “State of the University Address.”
Under Bailey’s leadership, UTRGV has had success in multiple areas. Student retention, research expenditures and philanthropic gifts to the institution have increased dramatically. In 2018, UTRGV was ranked the fourth-best university in Texas behind UT Austin, Rice and Texas A&M. Overall, UTRGV awards the most undergraduate and graduate degrees to Hispanics in Texas.
“This is truly an exciting time for UTRGV and the entire Rio Grande Valley,” Bailey said. “Our purpose is to be a university for the entire Valley with new programs and expanded opportunities for students, faculty, and staff. Bailey said. We are going to change significantly as an institution as we move forward.”
