EDINBURG - The University of Texas-Pan American (UTPA) has opened its $11.9 million, 40,600-sf Student Academic Center (STAC), which is the first new building constructed on the campus since 2007.
The three-story building will house several of UTPA’s services and programs, such as the University Writing Center, the Learning Framework Program and the Guerra Honors Program.
UTPA officials will also unveil a bronze monument of Spanish explorer José de Escandón y Helguera. Known as the “father of the Rio Grande Valley,” de Escandón established several villages along the Rio Grande River in the 18th century. The monument will be located at the west entrance of the STAC facing University Drive.
