Introducing: News Center

Nov. 14, 2007

UT Dallas’ story has been growing richer by the nanosecond. That's to be expected when you have faculty and students who pursue research and learning as if they were extreme sports. It's one of the University's strategic imperatives to start letting the world know more about what we're accomplishing, but how do you keep up with a target that moves at the speed of thought itself?

News Center is here to help.

UT Dallas from varied perspectives

News Center will deliver more news to more UT Dallas people than any product that has gone before it. Students, faculty, staff members and alumni will be subscribed to an e-mailed update.

Readers who would rather follow The University's continuing story on the Web can opt out of e-mail delivery and find News Center on its own home page. If you prefer to stay up to date via RSS feed, that's an option, too.

The page format has been organized by category so you can find what you need. Here are a few of the sections planned to help you keep track of the continually changing UT Dallas story:

  • Research – UT Dallas continues to invent tomorrow today. Here's where you'll finds news about research and scholarly findings.
  • Faculty – Faculty members are UT Dallas' prized asset, and we intend to chronicle their explorations and achievements in a fuller scope.
  • Students – Here you'll find news about students’ experiences, achievements and contributions to the university and the world beyond.
  • Campus News – Look here for news of broad interest to the campus community and general public about The University and its accomplishments.
  • Alumni – The UT Dallas story doesn't stop at graduation. Neither will our news coverage.

A more complete category list can be found on the News Center site.

Download a PDF of the most recent update ( 1.2 MB)

The University will tell its story better. The University will communicate its unique strengths and accomplishments with all major stakeholders, which include prospective students and their parents, current students, faculty and staff, alumni, research sponsors, donors and prospective donors, elected officials, and thought leaders in our region, state, and nation. Additionally, UT Dallas will promote its focused areas of excellence and its unique heritage.

A top-quality marketing and communications effort led by a Vice President for Communications, with a substantial increase Imper ative Four Tell Our Story Better in staffing and funding, will be empowered and charged with telling our story better. High priority will be placed on spreading the word throughout the Metroplex and beyond about student and faculty accomplishments and on continuing to improve UT Dallas’ Website.

Newsletters and other forms of publications (paper and electronic) will be developed and used in an integrated communications program. The University will likely invest heavily in communication, building understanding and recognition with important groups such as prospective students.
