(Aug. 8, 2011)--The UTSA Downtown Campus and the Institute of Texan Cultures have new addresses with the renaming of Durango Boulevard to Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard. The Durango Building at the Downtown Campus will retain its name.

The address change follows a ruling by state District Judge Renee McElhaney, which cleared the way for the City of San Antonio to change street signs along the five-mile stretch of Durango Boulevard. The new name honors Cesar E. Chavez, a farmer and civil rights activist whose actions founded the National Farm Workers Association, later called the United Farm Workers of America.

UTSA and Institute of Texan Cultures websites are being corrected to reflect the address changes.

Mail and deliveries to the Downtown Campus should be sent to 501 W. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd., San Antonio, Texas 78207-4415. The new address of the Institute of Texan Cultures is 801 E. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd., San Antonio, Texas 78205-3296. The U.S. Postal Service will honor the former addresses up to one year.
