An Army Futures Command headquarters located at the UT System building downtown will let students pursue research through the Army’s various sectors and allow the Army to tap into the talent and innovation available in Austin.

Varun Rai, associate dean for research at the LBJ School of Public Affairs, advocated for the move to Austin during the final stages of the Army’s decision. Rai told The Daily Texan that UT students could benefit from the increase in technological research activity that the command center will bring to Austin.
