The gift was presented to UTA President Vistasp M. Karbhari; Tim Quinnan, vice president for student affairs; and Michael Kingan, vice president for development and alumni relations. Since 2013, Texas Trust Credit Union has been the official credit union sponsor for UTA Intercollegiate Athletics.

We hope this gift will allow UTA to further enhance its career development services.”
In recognition of the gift, UTA will name the Career Development Center’s interview suite the “Texas Trust Credit Union Interview Suite.” The suite is the central waiting area within the Center and is surrounded by eight interview rooms.
President Karbhari commended Texas Trust Credit Union for its support of UTA and efforts to increase economic vitality in the communities it serves.
“We greatly value our partnership with Texas Trust and appreciate the commitment made to the Career Development Center.
