Some UTSA professors worry about what a ‘very tight’ budget could mean for next semester - Silvia Foster-Frau, San Antonio Express-News

The employment of some adjunct faculty next semester looks less than certain in the biggest college at the University of Texas at San Antonio, according to emails obtained by the Express-News and interviews with administration and faculty. UTSA’s budget situation is “very tight,” said Interim Provost Mauli Agrawal in an email. The university could not increase its tuition, he said, and pays about $12 million a year so veterans and their families can attend UTSA for free, as per the Hazlewood Act. The College of Liberal and Fine Arts enrolls 6,650 students out of almost 29,000 who attend the university. It offers the bulk of core classes, so almost every student takes a class in the college in order to graduate.
