Giving to Student Affairs

The Student Affairs division is dedicated to creating a holistic and supportive educational experience for UTSA students. The staff, programs, and services are designed to help students transition into and through college and prepare them for a lifetime of learning and contribution to a global society. The division of Student Affairs provides opportunities that complement the academic curricula and help the students overcome obstacles. We operate many of the programs and services of daily life, including housing, recreation, student organizations, health care, counseling, career development, financial aid, multicultural programs, and leadership development.

The Student Affairs division seeks to ensure that each student has a healthful and safe environment, supportive living conditions, appropriate counsel and assistance, multiple opportunities to develop leadership and citizenship skills, and experiences that lead to greater appreciation of diverse peoples and cultures, as well as opportunities to socialize, relax, and have fun.
