Academic Affairs @ UTSA

Academic Affairs is at the center of our university - advancing a high quality experience at UTSA for all of our students, both in and out of the classroom. Our focus is on the success of our students, supporting their academic path to graduation and preparing them for their prosperous future – a rewarding career, further study in graduate school, or helping our community through public service – to name only a few!

As a research university, our faculty are achieving at the top in their fields. Some are developing new cybersecurity technologies or improving educational practice. Others are creating new works of art or music. In this exciting environment of discovery, our students are learning this new knowledge from our excellent faculty today – where for others it appears in tomorrow’s textbooks.

Working with faculty and university leadership, Academic Affairs guides and supports our university to achieve President Eighmy’s exciting vision for UTSA as an urban-serving, multicultural discovery enterprise — a research university driving bold futures!

Kimberly Andrews Espy, Ph.D.Welcome to Academic Affairs at UTSA! It is an honor and privilege to serve as your Provost during this very exciting time in our history.

I chose to serve UTSA for many of the same reasons our students select to study here: to belong to a thriving and diverse community of learners and scholars at an incredible research university with an ambitious vision to be an even greater one – engaged with San Antonio and larger region, in service to our state, and providing benefit to our nation and world.

Academic Affairs plays a central role in the mission and vision of UTSA. At the heart is our firm commitment to our students to provide a world-class education and learning experiences that well prepare them for their future careers, and to enable our distinguished faculty to create new knowledge, foster innovation and vibrant economic development, and contribute positively to the social environment in which we live. As Provost, I stand ready to support our students and faculty to realize their goals.

UTSA is a proud member university of the University of Texas system, known world-wide for its quality and impact. As a “young” university, UTSA is on the move — I encourage you to check out our outstanding academic programs and learn more about our world-class faculty. Join us on the journey ahead.
