Our Leadership   Message from Campaign Chair

We Are
Leadership

What impact could your giving have that would be most meaningful to you? This is a question I have considered often, and my answer is shaped by my belief that no one achieves success alone.

Through philanthropy, I aspire to ensure a strong future for our community and to give people opportunities to fulfill their potential—much like what UTSA has done for me. I believe that whatever your passion, you can find a way to support it through giving to UTSA.

Now is an extraordinary time for UTSA. We have amazing potential to be the premier model of a diversity-centric research university for our nation.

I am honored to serve as chairman of the leadership committee for the We Are UTSA capital campaign, a first-for-UTSA effort to raise more than $175 million that will directly advance learning and innovation. Through this campaign, we will close educational attainment gaps and ensure that San Antonio has a university that drives industry in our 21st century, knowledge-based economy and enriches our way of life.

In Texas, we are always striving to make things “bigger” and “best.” Some argue that a state is only as strong as its public universities. I am proud to be a Roadrunner because UTSA is focused on offering the high quality opportunities that are found in our nation’s other top cities. Supporting UTSA is one of the best ways you can make such exceptional experiences available right here.

Now is an extraordinary time for UTSA. We have amazing potential to be the premier model of a diversity-centric research university for our nation. UTSA students represent the face of our country tomorrow, and it is through UTSA that they gain the knowledge and experience to lead.

UTSA is asking for your support to continue the momentum. Join us—become part of the “We” that makes excellence and opportunity here possible by making an investment today.
