(Dec. 6, 2018) -- UTSA President Taylor Eighmy today announced a new initiative to enhance the college experience: the creation of a Student Success Center at UTSA.
This initiative, led by Rhonda Gonzales, interim vice president for student success, will help to remove the barriers along a students’ path toward graduation by centralizing UTSA’s academic support programs and campus services under one roof.
Ultimately the university will construct a stand-alone building for the Student Success Center as a component of the campus master plan. Given current funding priorities and construction projects, the reality of a new building is several years away.
As an intermediary step, Gonzales’ team is collaborating with Academic Affairs and Business Affairs to explore the construction of a modular complex on the Main Campus to co-locate UTSA’s nearly 150 academic advising staff and student employees as soon as fall 2019. The spaces that academic advisors currently occupy will be repurposed to ease overcrowding and address other university priorities.
“Once fully realized, our Student Success Center will ensure that we are supporting our students’ academic journeys from start to finish, representing just one more way UTSA is putting them first,” said Eighmy.
Student success is one of UTSA’s three institutional destinations. The university has aggressive retention and graduation rate goals and a rigorous Integrated Student Success Plan and Strategic Enrollment Plan in place to help reach them.
