A message from the president of UT Dallas.
The University of Texas at Dallas - Office of the President

June 13, 2019

Dear University Community:

Happy Anniversary! On this day 50 years ago, Gov. Preston Smith signed Texas House Bill 303 that established The University of Texas at Dallas. The signing took place outside of the Founders Building, the first permanent structure of the new institution.

We will have a yearlong celebration to mark this significant milestone, with University Convocation on August 18 designated as the official kickoff event. Watch for more anniversary details in the coming months.

A special toolkit, with the 50th emblem and a guide about usage, has been created for planning purposes. It is available through the UT Dallas brand standards website. Please note that 50th anniversary print and promotional materials will not be publicly available until August 1.

I look forward to observing this special year in our history with you.
