UTSA is among an elite group of only 361 campuses to gain the Carnegie designation.
The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has selected The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) to receive its prestigious Community Engagement Classification, recognizing the university’s commitment to serving the local community.
The honor acknowledges UTSA’s “dynamic and noteworthy” community outreach efforts in San Antonio and its impact on the global community through teaching and research, public service, volunteerism, civic partnerships and economic development.
UTSA is one of 83 universities receiving this classification for the first time and is among an elite group of only 361 campuses to gain the designation since the foundation began recognizing community engagement achievements in 2006. The classification is the next step in the university’s advancement toward becoming a Tier One university.
