Vice President for Student Affairs

  • Two functional operations within the International Center—Study Abroad and International Partnership Development—will be moving under the leadership of Academic Affairs. A timeframe for the move has not yet been identified. Other than a possible change in reporting lines, no staff will be impacted. This change more closely aligns with the institution's vision to expand the international experiences of our students and to increase the number of international partnerships for UTD. If you have questions, please ask your supervisor.
  • Beginning Oct. 16, pedestrian access to Franklyn Jenifer Drive from Waterview Parkway will be halted at Rutford Avenue. Entry to blocked areas from the SSA toward ATEC may be navigated by the west entry of the VCB, or by the sidewalks north of ECSN. The path is expected to reopen Nov. 6. Please see the map for details.
