Stephen F. Austin State University regents on Tuesday voted to move forward with joining the University of Texas System.

With a single dissenting vote, Stephen F. Austin State University moved toward becoming the 14th institution in the University of Texas System.

All regents except Robert Flores of Nacogdoches voted in favor of joining the system. The Texas Legislature must approve the transition, which is expected to happen next year.
