University of Texas at San Antonio President Taylor Eighmy has announced numerous initiatives since taking the helm last September. Recently, a series of town hall meetings convened on campus to elicit feedback and elaborate on the long-term vision for one of those initiatives – the UTSA downtown campus. Key aspects of the vision and planning for Downtown UTSA include new buildings for classrooms, offices, dormitories and mixed-used development in order to offer a full curriculum, student housing and a truly robust campus experience. In addition to increasing the student population and ensuring a full-service university facility – in effect, an autonomous campus – Downtown UTSA will establish new schools and institutes. As a first step, a request for proposals addressing the repurposing of Cattleman’s Square should go out this summer.
