UTSA specializes in health, cybersecurity, fundamental futures, and human-social development, reflected in its urban-serving mission.

With over 34,000 students supported by more than 1,400 faculty and 5,600 staff and student employees, it is the largest university in the San Antonio metropolitan and South Texas region. As one of the few universities designated as both Hispanic Serving Institution and a R1 University, UTSA is committed to both learning and discovery. UTSA is focused on advancing the educational success of many first-generation, low income, underserved, transfer, Veteran, adult learners and international students by a faculty and academic experience second to none. UTSA is focused on promoting social and economic prosperity for our region, where 63% of its students come from San Antonio and South Texas.

Additionally, transfer students comprise about 40% of UTSA's total undergraduate population. Further enhancing the already rich mosaic of our student population is UTSA's military community, which makes up approximately 15% of total students and includes active-duty military members, veterans, reserves/guard, and their spouses and dependents.
