Key areas to be supported by new faculty cluster hiring program announced

July 24, 2019

Beginning this fall, UTSA will embark on a transdisciplinary effort to bring together intellectually diverse researchers by strategically hiring clusters of 20 faculty scholars to augment existing UTSA expertise in the following areas: 

  • Social and Environmental Challenges in Latin America
  • Quantum Information Science
  • Human Performance
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality

This new hiring focus is an outcome of the Clustered and Connected Hiring Program (CCP), one of five complementary programs within the Strategic Faculty Hiring Initiative. Launched in March by UTSA Provost and Senior Vice President Kimberly Andrews Espy, this academic initiative supports the hiring of promising, accomplished and diverse faculty in key areas to help the university address society’s grand challenges and support President Eighmy’s vision for UTSA.
