About/Welcome

About FSOP

The 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.
