emphasizes community; learning, discovery and knowledge creation; excellence;
risk-taking and innovation; transparency of communication and integrity of
action; service; collaboration; and flexibility. A reorganization in 2013
under a new Dean is crafting us into an avant-garde 21st century organization
that is moving into a new model of service to our campus constituencies and
evolving to bolster UT Arlington's Tier One aspirations.
