AUSTIN (WBAP 24/7 News) - Vistasp Karbhari, a top administrator at the University of Alabama-Huntsville, is poised to become the eighth president of the University of Texas at Arlington after an eight -month nationwide search for a replacement to outgoing UTA president James Spaniolo.
Karbhari, provost and vice president for academic affairs at the Alabama University, was selected by the University of Texas System board of regents on Thursday. Although Karbhari was officially designated as the lone finalist, the regents' action positions him to become Spaniolo's replacement at the end of a 21-day waiting period that will include visits with the UTA community in Arlington.
