Campus Master Plan

Charge

The Campus Master Plan task force will create a framework for the development of UTSA’s campuses over the next decade. The plan will adopt a strategy for long-term growth at both the Main Campus and Downtown Campus, integrating sustainability best practices while preserving natural resources and the culture of the campus. The task force will ensure that the master plan is linked closely to the university’s strategic vision and priorities, and that the process followed to shape the plan is highly collaborative, involving the UTSA and San Antonio communities.
