The University of the Incarnate Word is preparing to welcome its 10th president Tuesday.
A community introduction will take place at 10 a.m. in UIW’s McComobs Center Rosenberg Sky Room at 847 E. Hildebrand. The event will also be live streamed.
Dr. Thomas Evans permanently replaces longtime President Louis Agnese, who was dismissed by the school amid an investigation into inappropriate comments last year.
Evans has served as president of Carroll College in Helena, Montana over the past five years. He is also a previous associate vice president at Austin’s St. Edwards University.
The new UIW president holds two master’s degrees from University of Texas at Austin and a bachelor’s from Georgetown. He has a wife and two sons.
