Associate Vice President for Research and Dean of Graduate Studies: Dr. Raj Dakshinamurthy
In 1969, the Texas Legislature decided to create an “upper-level” university in Odessa—i.e., a college that accepted only juniors, seniors, and graduate students. And on September 4, 1973 they began to arrive. UTPB now offers a wide variety of advanced graduate degrees in online and in-person programs. FalconCommon's Dissertations & Theses serves as repository for that scholarship.
