A $1 million grant from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation will support early childhood development programs in the Bank of America Child and Adolescent Policy Research Institute (CAPRI), which will be housed at the UTSA Downtown Campus.
“The University of Texas at San Antonio and Bank of America share the common goal of creating opportunities in the lives of the people and communities we serve,” said Wilson. “Demand for quality education and educators is on the rise in San Antonio and throughout Texas. We are pleased to be able to support the Child and Adolescent Policy Research Institute because teachers and students reaching their full potential contribute to the vitality of San Antonio, making it a wonderful place to live, work and play. Education and economic experts alike describe such early childhood programs as economic development with a high public return.”
