UTSA is making significant progress toward the vivid expansion of its Downtown Campus. UTSA Downtown Campus at 501 W César E Chávez Blvd includes the College of Architecture, Construction and Planning, the College of Public Policy, and three departments within the College of Education and Human Development, including the Department of Counseling, the Department of Educational Psychology, and the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies.
Additionally, the campus houses the nationally recognized Institute for Economic Development and many other centers and programs that advance the university’s public service, extension, engagement, and community education throughout San Antonio and South Texas.
In 2018, UTSA President Eighmy announced a new $90 million 10 year advancement plan for the downtown campus which includes a $15 million gift from San Antonio business leader Graham Weston to support the university’s proposed School of Data Science.
UTSA is actively engaged in highly collaborative discussions with the City of San Antonio and Bexar County for the transfer of downtown parcels of land, valued at $13 million, to the university. Those parcels will be the sites for the new school, a National Security Collaboration Center, and for the relocation of the UTSA College of Business.
