Bill Powers, president of the University of Texas at Austin, is staying in that job for the time being.
UT System Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa announced his recommendation at this afternoon’s meeting of the Board of Regents in Austin. Cigarroa said he has had conflicts with Powers, but hopes that they can be overcome.
“There are problems,” he said. "I’ve addressed these problems. And it is my hopeful expectation that together President Powers and I will work towards resolving them and moving ahead.”
