Following the announcement that Admiral William McRaven was named the sole finalist for the position of chancellor of the University of Texas System, the Texas Coalition for Excellence in Higher Education issued the following statement:

“We applaud the selection of Adm. William McRaven as the next chancellor of the UT System, and commend the Board of Regents on its diligent search.
