Destination Two

UTSA will be a Great Public Research University

UTSA is on the fast track to becoming a nationally-recognized research university, well on its way to attaining National Research University Fund (NRUF) eligibility and aiming for an R1 designation by the Carnegie Commission. These designations will position UTSA to align with members of the prestigious Association of American Universities. UTSA is an urban-serving university focused on driving San Antonio’s knowledge economy, living out the notion that great universities need great cities and great cities need great universities.
