Our Strategy UTSA Strategic Plan
Message from the President
I am pleased to present to you UTSA 2016, the strategic plan for The University of Texas at San Antonio for 2007 to 2016. The plan was created through an 18-month process involving faculty, students, staff, alumni, community leaders, and others committed to helping UTSA become a premier public research institution.
Our intention was to develop an ambitious agenda to take us through the next decade as we work to provide access to excellence in higher education in an increasingly competitive and global knowledge-based economy. We feel this document achieves that goal.
Already, our University is home to many areas of excellence in education, research, and public outreach, but it is imperative that UTSA have an integrated strategic framework to guide us as we make important decisions that will shape the future of our institution and the communities we serve. This plan presents specific strategic initiatives to help us take UTSA to higher levels of excellence.
UTSA 2016 sets forth plans to enrich educational experiences and enable higher levels of student success at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, while promoting access and affordability within the state's Closing the Gaps goals. While we work to educate more students, the strategic plan aligns programs and services to improve graduation rates and learning outcomes.
This plan also charts a course to expand research and creative endeavors at UTSA, while acknowledging the importance of cross-organization collaborations with other educational institutions and businesses. Over the next 10 years, we will use this plan to expand our efforts to serve our constituents through public service and community engagement.
Finally, UTSA 2016 recognizes the need to expand available human and capital resources necessary to successfully achieve our vision, and sets long-term targets and metrics of progress and success in all critical areas as we meet these vital challenges.
With your help, The University of Texas at San Antonio is well on its way to becoming one of the premier public research universities in Texas. The next 10 years are crucial as we redefine the educational landscape of our great state, and I am confident that with your continued support we will succeed.
