>>At the University of Texas, we are creating the future. In a world that’s competing on knowledge and competing on
ideas, we want people to come to the university
and understand what’s going to happen next. We want to be the university of what’s next. That this is the place where ideas are
being generated that will change the world. The greatest strengths of UT Austin are its history in the
State of Texas, its size, its record of excellence,
and the excitement that students and our faculty feel when they come onto the campus every single day. We teach our students how to think creatively. We teach them to look at problems in new ways, to use
understanding to be able to figure
out how we succeed, how we go forward. And that is the incubator for the knowledge economy. They are thinking across boundaries. 3D printing was invented at the University of
Texas, and we use it extensively in research. And it’s a way to think through
ideas to see if it’s working. If it isn’t, you go back and change it. If it’s something new, that is how you innovate. The Texas constitution mandates the creation of the
University of Texas, but it’s not just any university. Texas is unique in creating a university of the first class. And as long as we’re pursuing excellence and doing it
aggressively, we will always be
a university of the first class. The University of Texas at Austin.
What starts here changes the world. [ Music ]
