Council Members Tour Campus Construction
Last week, the seven-member Richardson City Council and City Manager Bill Keffler visited UT Dallas for a tour of campus construction. Council members had the opportunity to get a bird’s eye view of the campus enhancement project and building projects that are under way.
“The City of Richardson is an extremely important partner for UT Dallas,” said UT Dallas Vice President for Public Affairs Amanda Rockow. “Our relationship with the City of Richardson has always been a priority for this University. It was a thrill to show these officials our amazing progress.”
Council members visited the new dining facility and the Natural Science and Engineering Research Laboratory. They also had the opportunity to hear from Nobel Laureate Dr. Russell Hulse and Dr. Ken Berry, who run the Science and Engineering Education Center at UT Dallas.
"The tour was a great opportunity to continue the City’s very positive relationship with UT Dallas,” Mayor Gary Slagel said. “All members of the City Council were able to become current with the development activities on campus. The transformation of the University is very dramatic. We are extremely proud to have UT Dallas as a part of our city.”
UT Dallas officials will continue to keep the Richardson City Council updated as the University develops and invite council members to join the University in a major groundbreaking this spring.
