This month’s Labor Market Update has seen a decrease in employment by roughly 50,000 for the Metroplex. To see which industries were hit hardest and how they compare to the previous year, read the full report.

Following the publication of enrollment data for the Summer and Fall of 2021, we have updated our Labor Market Explorer for Students and the UT Dallas Pipeline. These tools are invaluable for students, professors and businesses who would like to learn more about the talent coming out of UT Dallas.

The University of Texas System Board of Regents has approved the creation of a $300 million endowment called Promise+ that will be used to expand tuition assistance across the UT System. The impact to UT Dallas and its students will be immense, expanding the thresholds for tuition assistance and opening the funding to transfer students who were previously excluded from other programs.
