The College of Sciences has been a key contributor to the University's elevated classification as an R1 (Tier One) research institution by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions in Higher Education in 2022. College faculty have had significant success in their research efforts, as evidenced by its grant funding (approximately $30 million annually) from a variety of agencies across a wide range of projects.

As the third largest of nine academic universities and six health institutions within The University of Texas System, UTSA is a leading public, Carnegie-designated R1 research university specializing in health, cybersecurity, fundamental futures, and human-social development. 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 region. As one of the first universities designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and committed to its urban-serving mission, UTSA embraces multicultural traditions and is highly focused on student success and meeting the educational needs of its student population.
