By accelerating student success, growing its research organization, and introducing lasting innovations in teaching and learning, UTSA is “absolutely ready” to navigate the changing landscape of higher education.
President Taylor-Amy told the university in a cutting-edge address Monday. At the same time, UTSA is establishing new programs that enable more people to earn college degrees, increase access to higher education, and promote social mobility in the San Antonio area.
This year’s address came in the middle of Eighmy’s 10-year strategic plan for UTSA, so it’s the long-term accomplishments of the university and its commitment to becoming a great university that empowers the needs of this great city. It was a great opportunity to discuss his UTSA role.
“When I first came here five and a half years ago, I said that I was a firm believer in the idea that a great city needs a great university.
During this time, UTSA has built a comprehensive approach to student success. Despite the start of the pandemic, UTSA has cut the average time it takes for students to graduate from 5.4 years a decade ago to 4.3 years today.
