Top 25 Progress

Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek shared an update with the UT Board of Trustees last week describing the “dramatic progress” and “tremendous amount of momentum” in the university’s journey to become a Top 25 public research university.

Since the journey began five years ago, the university has taken big steps forward in improving student retention and on-time graduation. Research expenditures and fundraising have risen and the campus is being transformed by a record-setting amount of construction and renovation.

The Top 25 goal involves improving undergraduate and graduate education, attracting and retaining the best faculty and staff, growing research, and improving campus infrastructure and resources.
