Civic Discourse and Engagement at UTSA

UTSA students are bright, intelligent and compassionate, and we care deeply about their development and success.

To prepare students for future leadership roles, UTSA is invested in teaching them to be civically engaged and active participants in civic discourse. We strive to provide students with the tools to express their beliefs with passion and conviction while putting just as much energy into listening and understanding alternate points of view. 

This website compiles useful resources together with an overview of our ongoing efforts to develop scholarly and leadership programming on the topics of civil discourse, free speech and civic engagement. All of these initiatives are firmly grounded in UTSA’s committment to the freedom of expression, and our core values of integrity, inclusiveness, collaboration and respect.
