The two-phase process began with identifying four subcommittees, Community Engagement, UTSA Landscape, Identity and Peer Models, that were then tasked with four priorities to research and discuss:
The College of Liberal and Fine Arts (COLFA) is UTSA’s most academically diverse college and contributes to the education of virtually every undergraduate student at the university through its core curriculum. COLFA began the 2020-2021 school year tightening its focus on creative arts and humanities after the psychology, sociology, and public health programs became a part of the new College for Health, Community and Policy. With this growth and reorganization came the opportunity for COLFA to reimagine its identity and foci and to define its mission and values.
In late August 2020, the college initiated a tactical visioning exercise to help COLFA identify its greatest strengths and opportunities, lay the groundwork for future strategic planning, and coalesce a shared identity amongst its academic departments: Anthropology, Art and Art History, Communication, English, History, Modern Languages and Literatures, Music, Philosophy and Classics and Political Science and Geography.
