By now, you may have heard that Dr. Ricardo Romo has decided to retire from UTSA effective immediately, and I will be staying on as Interim President until your new president is selected, prior to the start of the Fall 2017 semester.
I know the past few weeks have been a time of uncertainty for the university, but I want you to know that we remain focused on you and your success. You came to UTSA because you want the very best education, and we are all committed to helping you achieve that as you prepare for your future.
In just the few weeks I have been on campus, I have had the chance to meet with several student organizations, and many of you individually. I am so impressed by your dedication and commitment. In the days ahead, I look forward to meeting even more of you and hearing what’s on your mind.
While my tenure at UTSA will only last a few months, I want you to know that you can count on me to advocate for your best interests. Academic success has always been, and will continue to be, my utmost priority.
Together, we will carry on our tradition of excellence and continue taking bold steps that will bring us ever closer to Tier One. I am so honored to have the opportunity to serve you.
