|The Hispanic Research Center (HRC) at The University of Texas
at San Antonio (UTSA), founded in l989, was created to foment
high quality research at this University on the nationís
fastest growing population. The Center functions under the
Office of the Provost and Vice President For Academic Affairs.
The interim director of the Center is Dr. Louis Mendoza.
The HRC's mission is to encourage,
facilitate and support faculty as they pursue, conduct and document
research, which will broaden and deepen the knowledge base on this for
Hispanics across disciplines, across divisions and across colleges.
UTSA faculty and the Hispanic Research Center are in a unique position
to inform their disciplines and influence methodology relative to this
population. Across the country, corporations, foundations, and private
and public sector institutions are fast becoming aware of the
challenge and the promise represented by this sector of the
population. At UTSA, this awareness increases our responsibility, but
also our opportunity to carry out our research mission.
