At a grand opening held on March 4, UIW officially opened the newest location of its Adult Degree Completion Program (ADCaP), the Pecan Valley Center, located at 408 Bushick Drive. University and community officials were on hand for the festive event. “The new center provides an affordable college option in an area of town that is surrounded by new growth and progress,” said UIW President Dr. Louis Agnese. “We are equally pleased that the new center is located in the Southeast part of the city, an area that’s been historically underserved by higher education.”
The Pecan Valley Center, UIW’s seventh ADCaP site, is the first to be located in the southern part of San Antonio. The 9,000 square-foot facility has four classrooms and a computer lab as well as a student lounge and reception area. It is staffed with a full-time advisor from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Undergraduate classes are held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Classes began on March 12.
Several undergraduate degrees will be offered at the new site including a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with concentrations in management, marketing and general business; Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Development; Bachelor of Arts in Human Resources; Bachelor of Arts in Administration; and a Bachelor of Arts and Applied Sciences. Additional undergraduate and graduate degrees will be added in the future. Applications are now being accepted.
