Welcome to The University of Texas at Austin. I am pleased that you’re joining the UT family. We want you to feel at home here. Our campus is a large, diverse community of faculty, staff, and students.  We pride ourselves on being a caring, Texas friendly environment in which to work and study. You will find your own special place here among friends and co-workers.

There are many people, resources and services available to assist and support you as you settle in and make your unique contribution to the University. Don’t hesitate to call on your supervisor and colleagues for information and advice. Explore the many UT web pages that provide updates and employee services to make your work easier, more enjoyable, and more productive. Few places of employment offer as many advantages as we do, including free tuition for employees.

The University of Texas has been transforming lives for more than 120 years. There are many symbols that represent UT’s special character – the Tower, Bevo, and “Hook ‘em Horns.” We hope you will take pride in your new workplace and share our Texas spirit. And we hope this will be the beginning of a long friendship with an institution you respect and admire.

Sincerely,
William Powers, Jr.
President
