The University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV): The Future of Texas

The 2019-2020 academic year will go down as one of the most turbulent in higher education's history. Like many other institutions, UTRGV had no choice but to dramatically alter its operations - almost immediately - because of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, thanks to the hard work and perseverance of our students, faculty, and staff, the 2019-2020 academic year will also go down as one the most successful in UTRGV's history. Join President Guy Bailey and his team to learn how the university experienced record-breaking enrollment and retention figures, bolstered its reputation as one of the top value schools nationwide by earning top rankings, especially for First-Generation and Pell Grant students, and continued to expand educational opportunities for students in South Texas.

Let’s Advance Learning in Texas

Texans are distance education experts. Their expertise comes from success in reaching and serving learners in remote small towns all across the state. Since Blackboard got its start in 1997, we have been able to join Texas higher education institutions and K-12 school districts in their efforts to advance distance learning and define best practices in online education. We want to continue this journey alongside you. Please take advantage of the resources we have collected here, and call on our support as needed to continue advancing learning across Texas and beyond!
