LUNCHEON FORUM: Bill Powers - President, University of Texas at Austin, "Nurturing the Soul of a Public Research University"
University of Houston

January, 2012

The Gülen Institute in collaboration with the Institute of Interfaith Dialog in Austin welcomes Mr. Bill Powers, President of University of Texas at AT&T Executive Education & Conference Center at the University of Texas at Austin for a Luncheon Forum on January 18, 2012 with his speech entitled "Nurturing the Soul of a Public Research University".

William "Bill" Powers Jr. has been president of The University of Texas at Austin since 2006. His goal of making UT the best public research university in America has been supported by a sustained emphasis on undergraduate education, including the strengthening of a core curriculum and the inauguration of a School of Undergraduate Studies. In addition to recruiting a diverse student body and faculty, President Powers has taken on the challenge of redefining productivity in higher education and has become a national spokesman articulating the value of the public research university to society. 

Powers has worked as a legal consultant with the U.S. Congress, the Brazilian legislature, and the Texas legislature. In 2001, he chaired a special investigation committee that examined the financial transactions of Enron Corp. The resulting report, known as The Powers Report, and his subsequent testimony before Congress gained national recognition.
