UTSA president Ricardo Romo re-capped the school's progress toward Tier One status in his state of the university address Wednesday.
Dr. Romo outlined some of the new initiatives to help incoming students - such as the new Graduation Rate Improvement Plan, or 'GRIP.' GRIP will proactively work with 250 high-school students in San Antonio to make sure they are prepared for college-level courses, with the goal of helping them avoid remedial classes when they get to college.
San Antonio small business owners and new entrepreneurs don’t have to go it alone. UTSA’s Small Business Development Center works with 35,000 businesses each year, and has now realized an important step in creating a network of trading partners up and down the Western Hemisphere.
