The University of Texas System’s Board of Regents approved a $9 million allocation to bolster everything from technology to strategies that will enhance student experiences on The University of Texas of the Permian Basin (UTPB) campus. In a faculty assembly at 9 a.m. Dec. 15, UTPB President Dr. Sandra K. Woodley made it clear that improvements were needed. “It is now my responsibility to make every dollar count to elevate the value of this great university to our region and beyond,” she stated in a campus news release (after the funds were indeed allocated).

“You will see some new faces,” Woodley announced in the a.m. Friday, noting that she would bring in persons of expertise in various capacities if the Regents approved the hefty allocation (which occurred later in the afternoon).

The $9 million will be distributed over the next three years. Woodley, in office approximately six months, analyzed operations and management of the University. The president’s priorities include:

  • A strategic enrollment management system,
  • Business process re-engineering,
  • Technology and strategic analytics aimed at attracting and retaining students.
  • Communications and marketing,
  • Investments for student services, including advising,
  • Expertise/capital/program enhancements

“I am humbled by the outpouring of support from the Chancellor, the Board, and the staff of UT System,” Woodley stated. “They have supported me every step of the way and this significant investment in UTPB will pay dividends far beyond our University.”

In positioning UTPB for the future, Woodley stressed creating a rewarding experience for students. “I am exceedingly grateful to the Chancellor and the Regents for this investment in UTPB. These funds will be a crucial part of our quest to improve our services and attract many more students in the future”
