UT-Brownsville professors concerned about jobs after university consolidation

By Melissa Montoya, The Brownsville Herald

BROWNSVILLE — Facing uncertainty, University of Texas at Brownsville professors met with Texas Faculty Association representatives on Saturday to discuss options for their future at the school.

The apprehension among faculty members comes from the language found in the law that will consolidate UTB with its counterpart in Edinburg, the University of Texas-Pan American.

“We are concerned there’s not built-in protections in the legislation creating UT-RGV,” said Terence Garrett, president of the Texas Brownsville United Faculty, the local chapter of TFA.

Senate Bill 24, which was approved during the last regular session, states the UT System Board of Regents shall employ faculty and staff of the “abolished universities as is prudent and practical,” at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.
