UTSA Family Association

Growing the Roadrunner Nation

UTSA recognizes the vital contributions families make to student success, so we created the UTSA Family Association to connect our Roadrunner families with the broader UTSA community of students, faculty and staff.

Stay Connected

We email our members the latest copy of the Family Association Newsletter, which highlights student accomplishments, upcoming events and features a personal message from our Vice President for Student Affairs, Sam Gonzales.

Attend Fun Events

We offer many great events where families can reconnect with their students, visit campus, mix and mingle with UTSA faculty and staff, meet other Roadrunner families, catch a Roadrunner Football game, and so much more!

Support Our Roadrunners

The Family Fund is made up of family member donations that support programs to improve the quality of life for all UTSA students. In addition, Family Association Members may apply for an appointment to the Parent Council, which serves as an advisory board to UTSA administrators.
