Webster University: Celebrating 35 years in San Antonio

Webster University’s San Antonio military campuses celebrated their 35th anniversary during a recent commencement ceremony at Fort Sam Houston.

A cake-cutting ceremony marked the occasion with dignitaries from each of the campuses, who were joined by senior vice president and Provost Julian Schuster and associate vice president for Academic Affairs Randy Wright, visiting from St. Louis.

In January 1976 Webster University opened its first campus in San Antonio at the home of the Air Force’s School of Aerospace Medicine. Fort Sam Houston, “Home of Army Medicine,” also opened a campus that year.

Lackland Air Force Base, “The Gateway to the Air Force,” invited Webster onto the installation in 1990. The Camp Bullis Campus opened under the umbrella of Fort Sam Houston, in 2006.

The newest campus in San Antonio is Randolph Air Force Base, “The Showplace of the Air Force,” which began offering classes in January 2011.
