Leadership UTSA

The Leadership UTSA program is designed to develop the knowledge and skills of faculty and staff—to build leaders to serve UTSA and higher education, and to use their new understanding of leadership principles in their current position.


Thank you for your interest in Leadership UTSA. This initiative—to provide personal and professional development to promising staff and faculty leaders—is a collaboration of the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.

We believe that, no matter your position at UTSA, everyone at the university can be a leader. Through this yearlong program, selected participants learn what leadership entails and how they personally can contribute to achieving our vision to become a premier research university. The primary requirement is that participants have a genuine interest in serving UTSA and using their leadership skills to build relationships for the advancement of our higher education mission.

Through a series of daylong workshops, a mentorship program and outside readings, participants will gain a better understanding of contemporary leadership theory and practices. In addition, they will obtain a better understanding of how each vice presidential area at UTSA functions independently and collectively.

Leadership UTSA is an example of how we are actively living the UTSA 2016 Strategic Plan. This program reflects our commitment to developing the next generation of leadership—at all levels across the university.
