University of Texas at San Antonio, Open Cloud Institute
Open Cloud Institute (OCI)
The primary goals of the Institute include: (A) Building infrastructure research in collaboration with industry partners and Open communities, (B) Enabling engineering and scientific research in emerging and future technologies, and (C) Training a pipeline of students to be prepared for the future demands of the workforce.
The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is a leading urban-serving university specializing in health, cybersecurity, energy sustainability, and human and social development. With nearly 31,000 students, it is the largest university in the San Antonio metropolitan region. San Antonio, which has strong historical significance as a Spanish mission settlement, is now the 24th largest metropolitan area in the US and 3rd largest in Texas. San Antonio is also recognized worldwide as the home of The Alamo and the Riverwalk and has a thriving economy based on tourism. The city has a large military presence and established healthcare and technology sectors, as well as being recognized as a hub for cybersecurity.
UTSA’s mission is to advance knowledge through research and discovery, teaching and learning, community engagement and public service. As a federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) located in the 7th largest city in the United States (U.S.), UTSA has a 10-year vision to become an urban-serving, Hispanic-thriving discovery enterprise considered a destination of choice for students. The University embraces multicultural traditions and serves as a center for intellectual and creative resources and is also a catalyst for socioeconomic development and the commercialization of intellectual property—for Texas, the nation and the world.
UTSA is one of the top four young universities in the nation in 2018 according to Times Higher Education, has been named the #1 Hispanic Serving Institution in the nation by Bloomberg Businessweek, and has the #1 cybersecurity program in the nation according to a survey by Ponemon Institute. UTSA is ranked one of the “Best of the Best” U.S. universities for minorities, veterans, females, people with disabilities and the LGBTQ population. It is among an elite group of U.S. universities to earn the Carnegie Foundation’s Community Engagement Classification.
As part of President Taylor Eighmy’s vision to make UTSA San Antonio’s university of the future, the university is defining and executing strategies leading to National Research University Fund (NRUF) eligibility through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) and an R1 (highest research activity) classification from the Carnegie Commission. UTSA’s research portfolio has become increasingly more transdisciplinary, cutting across areas such as cybersecurity, brain health, engineering, biomedicine, public health, educational transformation, sustainability, business and policy. These areas of research have been further fueled by focused faculty cluster hires in areas such as cloud computing, cybersecurity, brain health and data science. To this end, UTSA recently launched a faculty cluster hire in Artificial Intelligence (AI) (http://research.utsa.edu/AI).
San Antonio is a recognized cyber-analytics hub. Given the complexity of problems in transdisciplinary fields, and the opportunity for greater government and industry partnerships, UTSA has established The National Security Collaboration Center (NSCC), to support national security and global defense research in cybersecurity and cloud computing, cyber-attack/deterrence, critical infrastructure protection, analytics, high performance computing, AI, machine learning and visualization. The Executive Director of the Open Cloud Institute will facilitate outstanding collaborative research to further connect partners within the NSCC ecosystem (https://www.utsa.edu/strategicplan/tactical-initiatives/nscc/index.html).
