Within 50 miles of San Antonio, 15 colleges and universities offer degrees in all major fields of study and educate more than 160,000 students. Through a community-wide effort known as SA2020, former Mayor Julián Castro intended to orchestrate one of the greatest turnarounds in education in the United States by providing the community with access to quality education and career opportunities. With an already robust education system, the initiative positions San Antonio’s current and future workforce ahead of other major markets.
