AUSTIN (KXAN) — University of Texas at Austin President Bill Powers delivered his final State of The University Address on Monday.
Powers highlighted the research currently being done at UT and said the university needs to work every day to be the best public research university in the US. He also emphasized the “Campaign for Texas” which helped raised more than $3 billion for the university.
Powers says he’s proud of what UT accomplished.
“We’ll see the impact of these changes for years to come. To those who think universities never reform themselves, that universities never change, just look at what we have done.”
Powers will stay on as president until June of next year. A search is underway to find his successor.
