MEDIA ADVISORY: UT Tyler Mobile Go Center Launch
The University of Texas at Tyler will hold a ceremony to launch its new Mobile Go Center at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 4 at the UT Tyler Herrington Patriot Center.
The UT Tyler Mobile Go Center is an internet-equipped mobile computer lab that will serve to provide college-going resources to individuals and their families, and ultimately, increase the number of students enrolled and succeeding in higher education programs in Texas.
"We are excited to begin using the Mobile Go Center as a community outreach tool to provide more college awareness and access to the East Texas region," said Sarah Bowdin, UT Tyler director of admissions.
The UT Tyler Mobile Go Center is one of 18 centers that have been deployed across the state. It has been funded through two grants from the Texas Pioneer Foundation and UT Tyler Foundation. The MGC is a part of the College for Texans initiative to achieve the participation and success goals of Closing the Gaps by 2015.
The UT Tyler program will include a welcome, remarks from special guests and remarks from a future UT Tyler student.
Special guests include:
- Dewy Brooks, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
- Mark McDaniel, Tyler City Manager
- Tom Mullins, Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce President/CEO
