Great news! The U.S. Secretary of Defense appointed UT System Chancellor Bill McRaven to the Defense Innovation Advisory Board.

According to McRaven, the UT System is uniquely positioned to establish itself as a leader in national security, because within its institutions are great minds thinking and working on national security problems.

We're growing the nation’s STEM workforce by having students do real science — Longhorns research in real labs from the start.

And it works: Students who participate in the Freshman Research Initiative are more likely to both graduate and earn a STEM degree.

I own and run a school in Nigeria and due to the high incidence of children with special needs I applied for a masters in special education. I tried endlessly to communicate with the course coordinator but she never ever replies mails nor pick or return calls. The only time she ever responded to my mail was when i routed it through another person in the department and just that ONCE. I needed to know if it was okay for me to apply but my mails and calls met brick walls. After paying the application fee and going through all the stress of application I was denied. I sent a mail to the same coordinator to find out what went wrong so I can learn what to put in place. It is almost a month now and still no response. It is really disappointing as I held the university in high esteem before now.

I am fascinated in the work being done at the University in relation to the earth's magnetic field. While I am not a scientist - I have discovered that every species of tree is designed to respond to specific properties that exist within the earth's magnetic field. Clearly this is in place to prevent any one species dominating the plant kingdom. I have planted over a million trees in the development of concepts and technology that enables trees to be grown where no one would believe it possible. Even planted in >40 degreeC temperatures, the trees thrive and are NEVER watered, even in this semi-arid region of Australia. The implications are amazing - 70% of the the planet is arid or semi-arid. If scientific accreditation of my findings can be established - we can plant trees under the most incredibly challenging conditions to address climate change. Nobody has a monopoly on intellect, and often it is the chance discovery by a lay person of something monumental that has the most benefit for the world.

School openly gives scholarships to illegal immigrants who brag about breaking the law. My wife is a legal immigrant who has to wait for years because so many people have broken the immigration laws. You need to respect the rule of law and the will of the American people.

Amazing campus in an around the original "40 Acres". World class education and facilities with a very diverse student population. Great undergrad programs and exemplary masters and doctorate programs. Athletics are another fun pride point with Longhorns all over the world.
