Regents approved Woodley as a finalist for the position in March.
“I am humbled by this chance to serve The University of Texas System once again,” Woodley said in a news release. “UTPB has a heart for students, particularly the underserved, and I am inspired by this. I will do everything I can to ensure that UTPB continues to be a place where opportunity meets excellence.”
