The May 2001 Commencement ceremony was UTSA's official commencement ceremony celebrating graduates of the Spring 2001 semester. It featured three back-to-back ceremonies in the Convocation Center on Saturday, May 12 at 9:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. It was the first commencement to have the commencement address delivered by different speakers. Also for the first time, the commencement brochure distinguished faculty stage party representatives for each college.

Unlike the previous commencement, there was a reception in the East Wing of the University Center after all three ceremonies. This was probably enabled by the final ceremony starting an hour earlier than in December.
