Someone who will champion diversity by promoting equity and inclusion. A leader who understands the history and uniqueness of the University of Texas Medical Branch and the community of Galveston. Someone who appreciates equally the medical branch’s role as an academic institution, a globally important infectious disease research center and a clinical enterprise.

These were some of the qualities faculty and other employees of the medical branch identified at an open forum Thursday in Levin Hall, orchestrated by the University of Texas System to gather input as its search committee begins recruiting candidates for the medical branch’s top leadership position.
