UTSA is one of 20 universities nationwide designated as both a Hispanic Serving Institution and a Top Tier Research University. As our university remains steadfast on its bold trajectory, our division is focused on driving the success of UTSA’s largest comprehensive campaign in history - Be Bold: A Campaign for our Future.

The success of the campaign will require our Advancement and Alumni Engagement team to maximize our efforts and create philanthropic and engagement opportunities that will lead our donors and alumni base to support student success, research excellence, and strategic growth.

Our team aims to exhibit the university’s core values of integrity, excellence, inclusiveness, respect, collaboration, and innovation in all that we do. If those values resonate with you, we encourage you to consider joining our team

Our Culture

Many of our colleagues describe our culture as innovative and collaborative. We are encouraged to stay up-to-date with the latest ideas in advancement and test new strategies of our own. From planning giving campaigns and coordinating galas, to stewarding our donors and preparing for the next big “ask,” each department and team has an integral role in our success.

We are a “Strengths-Based” team: Within a colleague’s first few days on the job, they are invited to complete CliftonStrengths assessment and their results are added to our team’s Strengths grid. We are encouraged to learn about and appreciate our own unique talents as well as our colleagues’ talents.

Inclusive Excellence Champions (IEC)

Our Inclusive Excellence Champions team, comprised of volunteers from across our division is reflective of our team’s diverse demographic. The IEC works collaboratively to create engagement by building a BRAVE space and an inclusive culture - internally and externally - where everyone’s differences are celebrated, and every individual can excel.
