"The world is our campus starting on the southside"

Welcome from the Provost

Welcome to the website for the Office of the Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Provost’s Office oversees teaching, research, and institutional effectiveness on behalf of Texas A&M University-San Antonio.

Texas A&M-San Antonio is the fastest-growing university in Texas, and with good reason. We are vitally interested in and committed to the education of our students. Our faculty are dedicated to teaching and learning, seeking ways to challenge our students to achieve both in the classroom and beyond it.  Our students rise to this challenge, confident of our support and motivated to succeed.

Someone once said, “A ship in a harbor is safe—but that is not what ships are built for.” Texas A&M-San Antonio builds graduates who emerge from our programs prepared to contribute to both the economy and the life of the south side of San Antonio, the San Antonio metropolitan area, the State of Texas, and the United States. Our faculty hold academic degrees from prestigious universities combined with clinical, consulting, applied, and practical work experience. They are active in service and scholarship which informs their teaching. They serve as leaders in both their professions and their communities. As such, they are uniquely qualified to build “sea-worthy” graduates.

Over the next several months, my office will be focused on preparing for our visit from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). SACS is our regional accrediting body; accreditation by SACS certifies the quality of our degree programs and is a crucial step in our development as a university. I invite you to visit our website often for updates on our progress toward this milestone.

The time you spend looking around this website should impress upon you the dedication to growth, innovation, service, and quality which energizes our three colleges and our library. Take a moment to learn about the students, faculty, and staff at Texas A&M-San Antonio where “the tradition begins!”
