Students and staff smiling on Texas State Capitol steps
UTPB Day at the Texas State Capitol was held on May 3, 2023

The University of Texas Permian Basin is honored to have been recognized at the Texas State Capitol in Austin for UTPB Day!  

Dozens of students, staff, and faculty represented the University as State Representatives Brooks Landrgraf and Tom Craddick and State Senator Kevin Sparks highlighted UTPB’s accomplishments over the past five decades and shared a vision of what’s to come. The University will commemorate its 50th Anniversary with a yearlong celebration beginning in fall 2023. The day also provides a unique opportunity for the University to advocate for state funding to help our students, research, and programs thrive for years to come.  

Special thanks to UTPB’s Ballet Folkloriko team, Cheer team, and student government leadership for their fabulous performance at the Capitol.
