EDINBURG, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Newly appointed UTRGV President Guy Bailey and Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa are in the Valley on Wednesday giving an update on the university transition process.
Bailey and Cigarroa were at UTPA in the morning with students, faculty and staff discussing operations this upcoming academic year for both UTPA and UTB.
During a question and answer session, staff wanted to know when they would know if they have a position at the new UTRGV.
Francisco Cigarroa, "A lot of the questions we were asked were when exactly are we gonna know? We don't yet have a defined date, that would be a mistake for me to say that because I would probably be wrong by a week or two, but that's through the role of president Bailey working with the transition teams to move that forward."
Cigarroa announced the interim president for UTPA will be Havidan Rodriguez. William R. Fannin will serve as the interim leader for UTB during the 2014-2015 academic year.
