Dear Colleagues and Friends:
As I sat down to prepare remarks for our holiday luncheon, I was amazed by the numerous achievements we made this past year in assisting our five schools, centers and institutes in advancing our research enterprise. In an organization as large and complex as UT Health San Antonio, it can be difficult to recognize the role the VPR division plays, often behind the scenes, that enable us to accomplish strategic goals we have set. One thing became clear to me, however, if it were not for the leadership and commitment of the assistant vice presidents, directors , and team members in the division , continuing to raise the bar to our aspirational level would be a daunting task.
