Embracing our Hispanic Serving Identity

By 2028, UTSA aspires to become a model for student success, a great public research university, and an institution of strategic growth and innovative excellence. That vision puts students first by cultivating an environment focused on their success.

San Antonio likewise is home to a large and growing Hispanic population. Our futures are inextricably linked and we represent the university of the future by virtue of our demography, purpose and especially our three destinations.

As a Hispanic Serving Institution, we fully embrace our cultural identity by serving the unique needs of our Hispanic/Latino student population and are creating an environment where the university’s faculty, staff and leadership steadily grows to reflect the diversity of our students and community. By championing inclusive excellence, we further add to this narrative by allowing our catalytic role to impact the life trajectories of all our students, including our majority Hispanic student population.

This website offers useful resources together with an overview of our ongoing efforts to develop programming designed to help Hispanic/Latino students succeed personally and professionally. These initiatives are firmly grounded in UTSA’s commitment to student success and our core values of integrity, excellence, inclusiveness and respect.
