BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS – JAN. 5, 2017 – UTRGV President Guy Bailey on Thursday addressed a group of Brownsville officials and provided an update on developments at the Brownsville Campus.

About 100 university, city and local business representatives attended the lunch event, which was offered in conjunction with United Brownsville at the PlainsCapital Bank El Gran Salón on the Brownsville Campus.

Information included updates on the university’s progress in accreditation, enrollment, medical education, retention, research and building development.

Bailey said the meeting was a good way to let community leaders know what’s happening at UTRGV as 2017 gets underway.

“It was a way to meet in a public arena and inform the community of things that are happening on campus. We thought it would be a good venue,” Bailey said, “a good way of getting some information out.”

There are no plans as yet to hold a similar event in the Upper Valley.
