History

The University of Texas at San Antonio was founded on June 5, 1969 by Governor Preston Smith. UTSA now offers access and opportunity for more than 28,500 students, as mandated by the UT Board of Regents. UTSA has come a long way in just 35 years. Administrative offices for the first UTSA president, Arleigh B. Templeton, were set up in 1970 in HemisFair Park, and architects Ford, Powell and Carson Inc. began developing a conceptual master plan for the campus. Preston Earnest Smith (March 8, 1912–October 18, 2003) was a U.S. politician who served as Governor of Texas from 1969 to 1973. ...

UTSA's earliest students attended college at the Koger Center, an office park. Master's degrees were offered in business administration, education, bicultural-bilingual studies, English as a second language, environmental management, Spanish, biology, mathematics and systems design. Thirty-eight degree programs were approved for the school.


In 1973 construction began on UTSA's original campus, now known as the 1604 Campus, on a 600-acre tract in the rolling foothills of San Antonio's northwest side. As enrollment grew, five colleges—Business, Fine and Applied Arts, Sciences and Mathematics, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Multidisciplinary Studies—opened in 1975. In 1976 the John Peace Library Building, which also served as the new administration building, opened. James W. Wagener was named UTSA president in 1978.


In the 1980s four new colleges were put in place and new undergraduate programs were offered in civil, mechanical and electrical engineering. Later in the decade, the College of Sciences and Mathematics was reorganized to form the College of Sciences and Engineering.

The university currently has 7,000 employees.


UTSA has a goal to become a tier one institution (which recognizes at least 20 doctoral degrees a year in at least three disciplines) by 2007 and a doctoral/research extensive institution (at least 50 doctoral degrees a year in at least 15 disciplines) by 2015. As the premier doctoral/research university of South Texas and as a Hispanic-serving institution, UTSA will continue to provide educational opportunities for the underrepresented population of the region. In a 2007 study released by Academic Analytics, UTSA was ranked fifth for faculty scholarly productivity among other large research universities in the state of Texas. [2]

Expansion and growth

The university has focused its efforts (and over a quarter of a billion dollars) on building the 680-room Laurel Village housing complex ($39,182,000), expanding the Recreation Center with an estimated completion date of November 2007 ($45,700,000), constructing a new power facility that will serve a dual purpose of hosting a parking garage as well estimated to be completed in February of 2008 ($30,025,000), expansions to the student cafe estimated to be completed in May of 2008($5 million), a new engineering building estimated to be completed in July of 2009 ($82,500,000), as well as a South campus parking garage to be finished in March 2009. [4] An expansion to the University Center is also underway ($33,300,000), which will feature a student organization complex with a new Student Activities office, a ballroom to accommodate 650 people and seven meeting rooms to accommodate 50-150 people each. Student Activities will then take over the existing space and bring in new vendors to transform the building into retail space, including a bank, dry cleaners, post office and hair salon. The expansion is set to be finished by June of 2008. [5] The recreation center expansion will host new outdoor and indoor gyms, as well as a "lazy river" tubing experience for students.


The library is undergoing design renovations and another engineering building is expected to begin construction in the next few years that will house more laboratories for researchers. UTSA has also entered into a contract to purchase 125 acres of land near the 1604 campus, part of which will be used for a new $60 million athletics complex.[6][7]


Future outlook

In terms of long-term growth, UTSA has developed a master plan into 2030 for expanding the 1604 campus with several other new academic and research buildings, sports complexes, and additional student housing. The estimated cost of these long-term projects is $1.6 billion.[8] One of the larger plans is an entire east campus to be added, which will provide housing for engineering and science students, along with having more research labs. There is also student interest in developing a radio station. Along with the development at the 1604 campus, nearly $200 million in projects are planned at the Downtown Campus over the next several years.[9]


One prime goal for the university is the expansion of international programs and international reputation. Students from 88 countries studied at UTSA in the 06-07 school year, and many UTSA students are involved in a study abroad program which partners with major universities worldwide. Students are assessed an international fee as part of their tuition and fees bill that is used to help fund international programs, as well as bring professors from around the world to give weekend seminars for credit at the campus.



A feasibility report was recently completed that discussed future plans for UTSA to compete in Division 1A football, the possibility of changing to another conference division for sports competition, and to further expand the university's athletic program.


Student activities

At the heart of student life are 180 student organizations that represent a diverse array of interests: cultural, honorary, military, political, professional, religious, service, social Greek, special interest, and sports and recreation.


Among the most active groups are the sponsored organizations that receive funding from the University Student Services fee:

  • Campus Activities Board (CAB)
  • Greek Life
  • Student Government Association (SGA)
  • Volunteer Organization Involving Community Education and Service (VOICES)

The Paisano

UTSA also hosts a nationally recognized weekly newspaper, The Paisano. It has remained fully independent of the administration since its inception in 1981. The newspaper is published weekly every Tuesday. The Paisano is an independent student-run newspaper of the University of Texas at San Antonio. ...


The Independent

UTSA's second student-run news organization was founded in September 2006. The Independent [10] is an online newspaper experimenting with newer forms of media, such as podcasting. New editions are published every Monday during regular semesters with special issues during the winter and summer breaks.


Campus life

With the addition of more on-campus housing in recent years, campus life has evolved to become much more active. Before basketball games, tail-gate parties and body painting in the school's colors are common. There are many traditions as well, including Best Fest and Fiesta UTSA, both are events for students organizations to raise funds while providing entertainment and food to the student body.


A small percentage of incoming freshmen are in the CAP program, an agreement which allows students who are not initially accepted into UT - Austin to choose to come to UTSA. If they maintain a certain GPA and restrict themselves to taking specific classes, they will be granted admission to UT. The program is also in effect at other UT system schools, including UT–Arlington, and continues to draw more and more students every year. The CAP program has become more controversial as more freshmen are enrolled. UTSA officials have stated that only about 30% of those in the CAP program end up at UT - Austin the following school year. Despite this, however, many students are opting to stay at UTSA, as the university has been recognized for its growing research and business programs. The University of Texas at Arlington, usually referred to as UT Arlington or UTA, is a nationally recognized comprehensive doctoral/research university classified by Carnegie as Research University - High Activity [2]. The university is located in Arlington, Texas, USA. UT Arlington has a student population of nearly 25,000 and...
