Palo Alto College
San Antonio, United States - Texas


University description (as per official university website)

History of Palo Alto College

Palo Alto College was the culmination of a struggle that began in earnest in November 1982 when Southside community leaders, spearheaded by the Communities Organized for Public Service (COPS) organization, sought and received the endorsement of Gubernatorial candidate Mark White for a community college in the under-served Southside of Bexar County.

COPS and Southside leaders then approached Alamo Community College District trustees to build a third college. Trustees established the college on February 21, 1983, and it was chartered by the Texas Legislature on March 19, 1983 the official date of its founding.

Palo Alto College classes began with 231 students in high schools and at military installations in September 1985, and administrative offices were located at Billy Mitchell Village outside the Kelly Air Force Base gates.

Through a bond issue passed by Bexar County voters, the $13 million campus was built to accommodate 2,050 students on land inside Loop 410 at Texas Highway 16 in southern Bexar County.

When the mission-style campus opened in January 1987, the new college attracted students from throughout Bexar County and adjoining counties and was named the fastest growing college in Texas in 1991.

Consistent increases in enrollment have prompted much physical growth, specifically through the construction of new facilities for added classroom space as well as sports and recreation. The college is located on 126 acres.

The original complex consisted of 26 classrooms in 11 buildings, including a 15,000-square-foot Learning Resources Center, or Library.
