About Us

FSOP logoThe University of the Incarnate Word, a Catholic institution committed to educational excellence in a context of faith, welcomes to its community persons of diverse backgrounds, faiths, and beliefs. The University is located on what was formerly the estate of noted San Antonio philanthropist, businessman, and civil servant, Col. George W.  Brackenridge. The headwaters of the San Antonio River separate the main campus from the newer developments, including the International Conference Center for visiting international dignitaries and students. The city of San Antonio’s diverse ethnic culture has always been a part of the mission of the University and is a vital part of our students’ educational experience.
