AUSTIN, Texas –President Larry R. Faulkner of The University of Texas at Austin will visit ex-students and other University supporters in the Midland/Odessa area on Wednesday (Sept. 23) as part of his continuing effort to enhance and expand the University’s relationship with constituents throughout the state.
Faulkner, who became the University’s 27th president on April 13, is scheduled to meet with the Midland and the Odessa Texas Exes during a 5:30 p.m. reception at the home of Judge Pat M. Baskin and wife, Joan Baskin, who is a councilman-at-large with UT Austin’s Ex-Students’ Association.
During the trip, Faulkner also will meet with Dr. Charles A. Sorber, president of The University of Texas of the Permian Basin, to exchange ideas for providing greater opportunities for students.
“I look forward to returning to the Permian Basin area to make new friends and to visit members of the University family.
