The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce (ECC) was most recently recognized by the Univerisity of Texas – Rio Grande Valley’s Graduate College as the 2022 UTRGV Community Engagement Partner Award.
The organization was nominated by Dr. Sandy Hansmann, Dean of UTRGV Graduate College for its efforts to support graduate education.
The university commended Ronnie Larralde, Executive Director of the ECC for leading the effort to transform the RGV through student success, community engagement, and sustainable development through exceptional educational opportunities.
The ECC regularly and enthusiastically amplifies the Graduate College work through a variety of channels and venues. Most recently through the chamber’s weekly “FYI Newsletter”. The chamber shares and supports new graduate degree programs, special master’s and doctoral financial incentives, guest speakers, and special events.
Because of this, the ECC efforts ensure the Graduate College message, mission, and educational advantages reach the broadest and most diverse audience possible.
The Graduate College is pleased to have the chamber’s partnership as they have demonstrated a shared commitment to building a bright future for Edinburg and beyond.
