Just as a new era in higher education is dawning at The University of Texas at San Antonio, so too is a new era of philanthropic leadership and support. UTSA is on the move in every way and is the university of the future. Situated in the U.S.’s seventh largest and fastest growing city, UTSA is uniquely positioned to serve society due to its deep integration in a region that reflects the demographic future of the United States. UTSA has all the ingredients to realize its full potential as a great, public research university within the next decade.
Philanthropic support is key to the realization of UTSA’s goals. With a bold vision, President Taylor Eighmy has brought an accelerated pace of change and authentic leadership style to his direction of the now 50 year old university. UTSA has achieved record fundraising results for each of the last five years and is poised for greater and greater levels of philanthropic partnership and investment; potential among alumni and friends is high, and the University is greatly valued by the City of San Antonio and its proud residents, many of whom are donors to UTSA.
This is an ideal opportunity for the advancement professional who thrives in a high energy, high impact environment to bring a strong record of fundraising, management, and leadership success to the role. S/He will be a member of President Eighmy’s exceptional senior leadership team and will lead a development and alumni relations division of 75 with seven direct reports. UTSA is currently in the planning phase of a 10-year, $500 million campaign and completed a feasibility study supporting this goal in spring 2019.
Utilizing an integrated, comprehensive, and results oriented approach, the next VP will bring campaign expertise, a visionary style of leadership, and a passion for raising money in support of public higher education.
