Community Appreciation Day 2023
Facilities & Economic Development - The University of Texas at Dallas
This February, F&ED and the Department of Athletics hosted UTD’s neighbors from surrounding homeowners associations for an afternoon of collegiate basketball, burgers and reaffirming our special “town and gown” relationship. Dr. Calvin D. Jamison, vice president for Facilities & Economic Development, Dr. Richard C. Benson, president of the University, and Temoc welcomed our guests to the Visitor Center atrium, where they enjoyed a few carnival games before watching the Comet Women’s and Men’s teams take on the East Texas Baptist University Tigers. During a buffet lunch between games, Drs. Benson and Jamison took time to acknowledge the surrounding community and its importance to the University of Texas at Dallas.
