VP for University Operations Pat Clubb to Retire

Sept. 15, 2016

Dear UT Community,

After 26 years of service to the university, Vice President for University Operations Pat Clubb will retire Dec. 31, 2016.

Dr. Clubb's impact on campus has been highly significant. During her 16 years as vice president, serving in the administrations of three presidents, the university constructed 34 new buildings including the recently completed Health Learning Building, which will be the first of four buildings at the Dell Medical School, and the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center. She implemented two campus master plans and launched the President's Sustainability Steering Committee, which recently approved our first Sustainability Master Plan.

Dr. Clubb also initiated the Landmarks program, which develops public art projects on campus, and she has been a great representative of the university in countless civic and regional organizations.

University Operations comprises 22 departments that provide a diverse array of services, from child care and security to lab-safety training, benefits administration to parking and transportation services, building maintenance to power generation. We will miss Dr. Clubb's steady hand overseeing all of these important functions.

During the next few weeks I will share more information with you about the leadership transition for University Operations.

In the meantime, please join me in congratulating Dr. Clubb on her many accomplishments at UT and wishing her well as she starts a new chapter in her life.
