UTPA President's Circle

The President’s Circle at The University of Texas-Pan American is truly that – a “circle” of very special friends who are dedicated to ensuring a bright future for the University while at the same time giving the gift of education to the many talented students who choose to study here.

By encouraging the exploration of the wonders of anthropology and the arts, technology and teaching, engineering and English, mathematics and modern languages, sociology and the sciences, UTPA is inspiring the next generation of thinkers and dreamers whose invention and courage will transform our region and our world.
