UTSA 2015 Fifth-Year Interim Report

Dear UTSA students, faculty, staff, and friends,

I want to thank all of you for your continued support in sustaining the University’s Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) accreditation. A university’s accreditation is critical to its reputation and success. In 2010, the University worked together to complete the requirements for reaffirmation of its accreditation. 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.

During 2015 UTSA must prepare the Fifth-Year Interim Report to provide to the SACSCOC. This report must include the same level of detail and documentary evidence as is provided in the full tenth year Compliance Report, but fewer elements must be addressed. A team of authors has already begun its work on the required elements of this report. I want to express my appreciation for their willingness to undertake this task and to encourage each of you to cooperate fully with the authors should they ask you for information or assistance in making their sections of the report accurate and complete.

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.
