UTSA 2015 Interim Report

Dear UTSA students, faculty, staff, and friends,

I want to thank all of you for your continued support of the University’s reaccreditation process. A university’s accreditation is critical to its reputation and success. In 2010, the University worked together to complete the requirements for reaffirmation of accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The SACSCOC accredits UTSA to award bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees. In early 2011, we received official notice of our reaffirmation of accreditation from the SACSCOC President, Dr. Belle Wheelan.

In 2015, UTSA will need to write a Fifth-Year Interim Report to provide to the SACSCOC. The Fifth-Year Interim Report must include the same level of detail and documentary evidence as is provided in the full tenth year Compliance Report; however, fewer elements must be addressed. An audit team has already been established to look at each required element of the Fifth-Year Interim Report to make sure that we are in compliance and have appropriate policies in place. In the coming year, work will begin on compiling the report and the necessary documentation.

I encourage you to keep up your good work to help us sustain the quality of our programs.

Thanks again for all of your hard work.
