UTSA's College of Public Policy (COPP) started in 2000 as the College of Urban Professional Programs.[1] It is one of two colleges to be housed at the Downtown Campus[2] and has most of its classes in the Frio Street, Buena Vista, and Durango buildings.[3]

AdministrationEdit

The College of Public Policy dean is Dr. Rogelio Saenz of the Department of Demography and Organization Studies and his office is located in DB 4.110. Dr. Francine Sanders Romero of the Department of Public Administration is the Associate Dean.[4][5]

AdvisingEdit

College of Public Policy students get advised at the Downtown Undergraduate Advising Center (DTUAC) located in BV 1.304.[6] It is run by Monica Glover and has three advisors for COPP.[7] The COPP advising fee has been $90 since at least 2008.[8][9]

DemographicsEdit

According to the 2011 UTSA Fact Book, 53.3% of COPP students are female, leaving 46.6% male. It also states that 24.5% of the students are white, 12% black, 55.4% Hispanic, 2.4% Asian, 1.1% international, and 4.6% all other categories.[10]

OrganizationsEdit

The only registered student organization that aims at a particularly COPP audience is Social Work: Advocating for Change Together.[11]

The College of Public Policy students are currently represented by 3 senators in the Student Government Association.[12] The SGA constitution before 2006 specified one representative for every 2,000 students; the constitution since then specifies one senator for every 1,000.[13]

DepartmentsEdit

Before 2000, Criminal Justice existed as a major under the College of Social and Behavioral Science's Division of Social and Policy Sciences.[14]

The current department structure of the College of Public Policy has been in place since 2007, when the Department of Demography and Organization Studies was added.[15] For more on its history, see Departments of the College of Public Policy.
