McRaven yesterday announced the UT System's plans to expand its footprint in Houston.

The previous day, the system's Board of Regents had approved the acquisition of more than 300 acres near Houston's Texas Medical Center.

“We know that there is broad support for UT in Houston. For UT Austin alone, we have more alumni and more student applicants hailing from Houston than anywhere else in the state,” Regents Chairman Paul Foster said. “When you consider the vast assets of the UT System and Houston’s spirit of innovation and ingenuity, we have an opportunity to create something new for Texas that will make it even more competitive on the world stage.”
