In Focus Video Update

Office of the President ad interim

There are multiple ways to access the In Focus messages. In addition to the recap in Weekly Relays, you can watch and listen to the videos from this site (below); please use a modern web browser for the best experience. If you are at a PC without audio or speakers, closed captioning on the videos can be turned "On" and "Off" by clicking the “CC” symbol in the video player tool bar (the symbol displays once you hit "play," on the right side of the tool bar). Closed captioning is now on by default.  Or, you can also access the transcripts on this web site to read the messages; a transcript accompanies each video. If you are a social media user, the videos (with subtitles) are sometimes posted to the UTMB employee Facebook page, I Am UTMB. Facebook will display captions if you mute your sound.
