Unique Characteristics of UTD • Relatively new, opened in 1975 • Schools offer multiple Unique Characteristics of UTD • Relatively new, opened in 1975 • Schools offer multiple degree programs, but without traditional departments • Strong interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary tradition • Empahasis on non-traditional student: – older rather than straight from high school – already employed rather than 1 st time job seekers, – re-tooling not just first degree • Rapid growth – enrollment doubled in last 10 years to 14, 000 • Desire to add new degree programs and become a Tier I institution • D/FW unique among major US metropolitan centers: it has no renowned university GIS at UTD—AAG 2006 The University of Texas at Dallas
