Also known as UTSA, the University of Texas at San Antonio takes the title of being one of the largest universities in the city of San Antonio and the entire state of Texas. The university is made up of four campuses that occupy approximately 725 acres of land in the metropolitan area of San Antonio. The Main Campus houses the majority of colleges and faculties, including the College of Business, College of Liberal and Fine Arts, College of Sciences, Honors College, and the graduate school.
The Downtown Campus, on the other hand, is home to the College of Architecture, College of Health, College of Education and Human Development, and others. Meanwhile, the Hemisfair Campus hosts cultural shows, historical exhibits, and other programs throughout the year as promoted by the Institute of Texan Cultures, which is situated in the campus. The institute is dedicated to conducting research and other activities that encourage both locals and non-locals to learn more about the rich culture of Texas and its people. Lastly, the Park Campus is the hub for sports and athletics with its own soccer field and a stadium for track-and-field and other sporting events.
The University of Texas at San Antonio is a public research institution recognized for its research efforts in the fields of biomedicine, cybersecurity, environmental conservation, education, and manufacturing. It also has world-class research facilities, such as the Stem Cell Core, Medicinal Chemistry and Synthesis Core, Behavioral Core Facility, the Kleberg Advanced Microscopy Center, Photon Physiology Laboratory, and others.
UTSA has also built strong partnerships with external organizations, including government- and military-affiliated groups, to establish research centers and institutes for cross-disciplinary collaborative research efforts. Among these organizations are the Academy for Teacher Excellence Research Center, Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Berkeley Lab, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory’s Army Research Office, the Office of Naval Research, and more.
The educational institution that became an internationally renowned research-intensive university was founded in 1969 by the 61st Texas Legislature. The establishment of the university was heavily advocated by Frank Lombardino, a conservative Democrat, who is also considered to be the father of UTSA. Although the university’s expansion was apparent during the 1990s, its dramatic growth did not begin until the mid-2000s. In 2007, the “Master Plan” was created and became the guide for UTSA’s transformation into a prestigious research institution. UTSA’s strategic plan is still being accomplished but with new goals all geared toward its vision to become the university of the future.
