Mission Statement
Team Academics was established in order to provide academic services for student-athletes. We provide the necessary academic support services for all student-athletes to be successful in the classroom and pursue an undergraduate degree while competing as an athlete. The center is dedicated to the academic and personal development of all student-athletes.

Consistent with the mission of the University of Texas at San Antonio, the Athletic Department is committed to provide an environment in which student-athletes can be successful academically, athletically and socially. In doing so, the Department dedicates itself to absolute compliance with the rules of the University of Texas System, the University, Conference USA and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Vision Statement
The UTSA Athletic Department will be successful in its mission when ...
· Student-athletes achieve academically and compete athletically at the highest level, and are prepared with skills for life.
· It achieves a level of social responsibility, honesty and integrity higher than is expected by the public and is required by laws, policies, guidelines and rules.
· Athletics is the focal point for school identity, pride and spirit among students, faculty, staff, alumni and the surrounding community.
· The community benefits from public service, affordable entertainment and economic growth derived from athletics.
