AUSTIN, Texas—Rey Ramos, the Director of Admissions at The University of Texas School of Law, has been named the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs effective March 1.

"For the past several years, Rey has done a superb job as our director of admissions programs. I am confident that he will bring the same high level of skill and energy to his new position," said UT Law Interim Dean Steven Goode.

Ramos joined the Law School in August 2002 as Director of Admissions. His responsibilities have included organizing all on-campus recruitment efforts including UT Law Day—the Law School's annual fall open house—and Prospective Students Day.

In addition, Ramos served as one of the primary recruiters for the Admissions Office and supervised the Student Recruitment and Orientation Committee (SROC), a select group of current students that assists the admissions office in recruitment and outreach efforts.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the admissions office and UT Law. I am excited to continue to work on behalf of our students in my new role," Ramos said.

In his new role, Ramos will lead the Law School's Student Affairs Office and counsel law students on both academic and extracurricular matters. Additionally, he will organize various events at the Law School including the Sunflower Ceremony, the graduation ceremony at the end of the spring semester.

Ramos was born and raised in Mission, Texas. He received a bachelor's degree in government in 1996 from The University of Texas at Austin. Prior to joining the Law School in 2002, Ramos worked as a student affairs administrator in the UT Office of the Dean of Students and as an Assistant Director in the UT Freshman Admissions Center.

Ramos has received numerous advising awards including the Eyes of Texas Excellence Award in 1997 and 2003 in recognition of outstanding contributions to student life at The University of Texas at Austin. The Student Bar Association will honor Ramos as their outstanding staff/administrator during upcoming W. Page Keeton Law Week festivities.
