UTSA is San Antonio's university of the future

One of the many joys of my first year as president of The University of Texas at San Antonio is discovering the depth and breadth of our talents as a community. The work of our determined students, innovative faculty and dedicated staff is nothing short of remarkable.

I am proud of UTSA, and even more energized by its potential for greatness.

As an urban serving discovery enterprise, I see UTSA as a driver of prosperity and opportunity for our city, state, nation and world. We have the capacity to tackle some of the grandest challenges facing our society.

I see UTSA as a place where all students—particularly those who are underserved—can thrive. Our focus on student retention and academic success underscores this role.

I see our location in San Antonio and South Texas as one of our greatest strengths, allowing us to take advantage of the living laboratories at our doorstep. UTSA serves as a portal to the Americas and the world, and it provides our students with unparalleled learning opportunities.

UTSA is poised to become San Antonio’s university of the future. A renaissance for our university and our city are in sight, bolstered by entrepreneurial approaches and a commitment to innovative partnerships. Our students are the direct beneficiaries of all this synergy.

Thank you for your interest in UTSA.
