Faculty Support
Creating New Knowledge and Serving Society

Faculty recruitment is a key priority. UTSA aspires to bring “super stars” to San Antonio who will enrich the community with knowledge and who will expose our students to the latest ideas and technologies. In academia, the standard to attract and reward such renowned faculty are professorships and chairs.

Increasing the number of endowed professorships and chairs at UTSA not only ensures the long-term success of the university, but it is essential to achieving the goal of becoming a Tier One university. Top faculty members secure research funding that advances UTSA’s research mission and inspires economic development in San Antonio and across Texas. Exceptional faculty members are also key to recruiting and training top graduate students.

Other universities have had more than a hundred years to build endowments and philanthropic programs that leverage excellence. As a fairly young institution, UTSA has not had the benefit of time to build critical funding for faculty support. In order to remain competitive and bring the brightest minds to San Antonio, UTSA needs additional private investment in research and faculty recruitment initiatives.

Texans deserve access to world-class opportunities—investing in faculty support and research helps attract the best and brightest to ensure the region’s continued educational and economic growth.
