UTPA is one step closer to having a President.
The University announced on Monday that Dr. Roberts S. Nelsen is the only finalist for the position. The University of Texas System Board of Regents voted in Austin on Monday. Nelsen serves as Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs at Texas A&M in Corpus Christi. Finalist must be named 21 days before a official appointment to the post. The university's previous president, Dr. Bambi Cardenas, retired in January.
