Blueprint UTSA articulates an institution-wide commitment to excellence. The plan is driven by the university’s vision of becoming a premier research institution that advances knowledge through distinctive research and discovery, provides students with outstanding educational experiences and furthers the economic and social well-being of the global community.
Developed by students, alumni, faculty, staff, administrative leaders and community members, the Blueprint UTSA plan builds on the previous UTSA 2016 strategic plan. It reaffirms UTSA’s institutional mission and core values while presenting a clear roadmap that continues the university’s ascension to Tier One status.
Over the last decade, UTSA has achieved many milestones. It is a university of first choice for students. Its enrollment has grown to nearly 29,000. It is one of the nation’s leading Hispanic Serving Institutions with more than 50 percent of its students coming from underrepresented groups. Its diversity mirrors the demographic shifts and globalization of our society. It is uniquely “the face of America over the next 10 years.”
UTSA is expanding its world-class faculty, and the groundbreaking work of its researchers and students have generated new discoveries and led to international recognition.
The university raised more than $200 million for student scholarships, faculty and research support, campus amenities and outreach programs in its first-ever capital campaign.
The San Antonio metropolitan area is seventh in the nation in population growth, and has a thriving economy including a flourishing high-tech sector. Blueprint UTSA responds to changing workplace demands and demonstrates UTSA’s leadership in preparing students or the global workforce.
