Longtime UTPA professor puts service first

The UTPA graduate program coordinator recently received a Faculty Excellence Award in recognition for his outstanding contributions to the College of Education. The honor is given to faculty members who have given their best to advance the success of students and the University. Jorgensen was selected for his years of service to the University and his commitment to student advisement.

“I do not like being singled out and recognized for work that in most cases was not done by me alone. There are many who have contributed to my success and I wish they too could be recognized,” he said. “Life today is more complex than in my generation. Students need all the mentoring they can acquire to be successful.”

Jorgensen said he decided to pursue a career in athletic education to follow in his father’s footsteps.
