Hispanic Serving Institution

UTSA is one of the original 189 universities in the nation to be federally-designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution. While the designation allows UTSA to compete for federal funding, our vision goes much further: we aspire to be a model Hispanic thriving institution where students from all backgrounds can excel.
