The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley was created by the Texas Legislature in 2013 in a historic move that brings together the resources and assets of UT Brownsville and UT Pan American and, for the first time, makes it possible for residents of the Rio Grande Valley to benefit from the Permanent University Fund—a public endowment contributing support to the University of Texas System and the Texas A&M University System.
The new university will also be home to a School of Medicine and will transform Texas and the nation by becoming a leader in student success, teaching, research, and health care. UTRGV enrolled its first class in the fall of 2015, and the School of Medicine will open in 2016.
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley now has an enrollment of approximately 28,000 students. Residents and visitors are able to attend intercollegiate athletics in NCAA Division 1, music theatre and dance performances that are hosted throughout the year.
