    William Powers Jr., president of The University of Texas at Austin, delivered his fifth President’s State of the University Address Sept. 15, that reinforced the role of higher education and the university in fulfilling the American Dream.

    This video — highlighting the achievements of the university’s talented faculty, students and staff — played before and after the address.

    “Creating opportunity … supporting democracy … generating economic growth — our work is critically important. Great things happen on this campus every day, and all because of our talented people,” said Powers in his address to the university. “You saw but a hundred of them in the awards video a few minutes ago. There are thousands every day who bring distinction to our university. I want to congratulate all of you for your outstanding work.”
