The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) was created by the Texas Legislature in 2013 as the first major public university of the 21st century in Texas. This transformative initiative provided the opportunity to expand educational opportunities in the Rio Grande Valley, including a new School of Medicine, and made it possible for residents of the region to benefit from the Permanent University Fund – a public endowment contributing support to the University of Texas System and other institutions.

UTRGV has campuses and off-campus research and teaching sites throughout the Rio Grande Valley including in Boca Chica Beach, Brownsville (formerly The University of Texas at Brownsville/Texas Southmost College campus), Edinburg (formerly The University of Texas-Pan American campus), Harlingen, McAllen, Port Isabel, Rio Grande City, and South Padre Island. UTRGV, a comprehensive academic institution, enrolled its first class in the fall of 2015, and the School of Medicine welcomed its first class in the summer of 2016.

The Rio Grande Valley

With campuses in Brownsville, Edinburg and Harlingen, UTRGV serves the Rio Grande Valley and beyond. With a population of more than 1 million people, the Valley is one of the fastest growing regions in Texas. The Valley’s geographical location places it in a region where its roots extend into both Mexico and the United States. Every year the Valley grows and with it comes economic opportunities for graduates.

Home to natural habitats like the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge and South Texas Botanical Gardens, the Valley is a wonderful place to just kick back and relax. South Padre Island, the largest barrier island in the world, serves as the hot spot for Valley locals and tourists. Whether it is the beautiful beach or the opportunity for personal and professional growth, the Valley is a perfect place to call home.
