Welcome from the Senior Vice Provost and Dean Richard J. Reddick

Richard Reddick


Welcome to Curriculum & Enrollment and Undergraduate Studies at The University of Texas at Austin! This portfolio houses four large operational areas focused on student success: Enrollment Management, Academic Curricular and Career Innovation, Student Engagement, and Business Services. Collectively, we work to attract bright and talented students and to provide a variety of support, services, and resources for them to be successful during their time at the university.

Whether communicating with a prospective student, working directly with a currently enrolled student, trying to help a former student re-enroll, or helping students navigate the institution, staff in this portfolio are working diligently to provide students and their families with a high-quality experience that fosters learning and a sense of belonging. We take a more holistic approach to student success and to fulfilling the university’s mission and core purpose to transform lives for the benefit of society.

We invite you to familiarize yourself with the many departments that make up Curriculum & Enrollment and Undergraduate Studies, and the array of services we provide to students, staff, and faculty. Our division comprises the Office of Admissions, Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, Texas One Stop, Office of the Registrar, Core Curriculum, Center for the Skills and Experience Flags, Signature Courses, Bridging Disciplines Programs, First-Year Experience, First-Year Interest Groups, Transfer-Year Experience, Assessment & Professional Development, Vick Advising Excellence Center, Undergraduate Research, Sanger Learning Center, Texas Success Initiative, Texas Career Engagement, Graduation Help Desk, UT for Me, University Leadership Network, and The LaunchPad.

All undergraduate UT students will interact with the people in this portfolio at some point in their academic careers, and we pride ourselves on providing exceptional service that helps students reach their goals and ultimately graduate from the university. We have a shared vision, our units work interdependently, to create an inclusive space for learning and to provide forward-looking and enriching student experiences.

I’m honored to lead this team of talented and caring personnel as they create high-impact programs and work hard each day to ensure we live up to the university’s tagline: “What Starts Here, Changes the World.”

Hook ‘Em Horns!
