Rep. Zerwas Named UT System Vice Chancellor

Past Chairman of the House Higher Education Committee and current Chairman of the Texas Appropriations Committee, Rep. John Zerwas will start as Executive Vice Chancellor of the UT System for Health Affairs on Oct. 1. With a career in anesthesiology, Zerwas is well prepared for the job as he will supervise six health institutions that include four medical schools, two dental schools and three nursing schools.

Over the years, TACT members have visited Zerwas and his staff many times to discuss higher education funding. We wish him all the best with his new endeavors in higher education.
