Description: David Laude, Professor of Chemistry, has been a member of the faculty in the College of Natural Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin since 1987. During the first ten years of his tenure, he ran a large research program in mass spectrometry. He has been a leader in program reform at the undergraduate level at UT for the past 25 years.In 2012, Dr. Laude joined the Provost’s Office to champion four-year graduation rates. He developed the 360 Communities program that places all 8500 incoming freshmen in small communities to assist with acclimation to the university, and coordinates assignment of 2000 incoming freshmen from under-resourced backgrounds to freshman success programs. He has redefined the role of Financial Services to support new programs like the University Leadership Network that further integrates students into the UT community. All of these efforts have contributed to what are now the highest persistence and graduation rates in the university's history.
