New university out of committee

Our student newspaper reports that the bill to create a new university in south Texas is now out of committee. We still do not know when we will know if the bill will even come up for a vote in the legislature, however. The bills are supposed to go to Calendering Committee next, which gets to decide when the bills go to a vote in the legislature.

It has been interesting, to say the least, to be interviewing job candidates for positions now. The conversation keeps coming up as to what it might be like in a new university, but nothing is certain. Every conversation about the prospects for a merge is an exercise in hedging your bets.
