Historical Note

Frank Harrison served as president of the University of Texas at Arlington from September 1968 to October 1972. His term was marked by student unrest generated by objections, primarily by African American students, to the school's Rebel theme. To end the dissension, Harrison recommended to the Board of Regents of the University of Texas System that "Rebels" be replaced by "Mavericks." This was instituted in June 1971. Harrison oversaw the university's transition from a four-year school to a graduate university. During his tenure as president, twenty-two master's degree programs were instituted and doctoral programs in engineering and psychology were begun. Buildings erected during Harrison's presidency were, Carlisle Hall, the Business/Life Science Building, University Hall, and Davis Hall.
