Mayor Julian Castro

We Are The Future

For San Antonio to compete globally in attracting great jobs and industry, and retaining the companies that we do have, there is no doubt higher education is the basic building block. UTSA becoming a Tier One institution is not really about status; it is about investing in our community and ensuring our prosperity well into the future.

We Are Innovation

With investments from donors, UTSA scholars push the boundaries of innovation and discovery. We should all want to help capitalize on the intellectual power at UTSA to strengthen our workforce and attract new companies. This is what San Antonio deserves, and we get there when you give to UTSA.

We Are Leaders

UTSA provided me—a first-generation student who did not have any money—the opportunity to go to school and get a great education. For the university to reach top-tier, it has to be a team effort. The time is right now, and business leaders, corporate officers, alumni and people from all walks of life who have been impacted by the university need to think about that and say, ‘I’m going to make that investment in my community.’

We Are Making an Impact

Every business community thrives on the successes of their public institutions of higher education. UTSA generates an economic impact of $1.2 billion and supports 15,000 jobs for the San Antonio area. For the future and the economic health of San Antonio, I ask you to get behind President Romo and invest in UTSA to help create a Tier One university for a Tier One City.
