Bolder Together

August 30, 2022


Dear Colleagues,

What a phenomenal time to be a Roadrunner! Last year we attained some major milestones including achieving Tier One and becoming a founding member of the Alliance of Hispanic Serving Research Universities. The momentum is continuing this year as we advance the arts through our UTSA Southwest Campus and prepare to open our newest building—San Pedro I—in Downtown San Antonio. Together we’re making astounding strides.

These achievements are made possible because of your hard work and commitment to excellence. You are the heart of UTSA, and I am deeply grateful for the work you do to create an environment where new discoveries are made and students thrive.

We are now just months away from launching the largest comprehensive campaign in UTSA’s history – Be Bold: A Campaign for Our Future. The campaign supports student scholarships and programs, graduate fellowships, endowed faculty positions, capital projects and more across the entire university. While we have already made incredible progress toward our $500 million goal, our work to foster the support of our alumni, faculty, staff and friends continues on. 

Plans are well underway to publicly launch the Be Bold campaign this October, and we want to kick-off this historic moment with all of you. Your role in celebrating and promoting this campaign is essential to its continued success.

I’d like to personally invite you to attend our special Be Bold kickoff event just for faculty and staff. Please mark your calendar and watch for more details coming in September.
