Texas A&M-San Antonio will play an active role in SA300 Tricentennial – Celebrating San Antonio for 300 Years, with President Cynthia Teniente-Matson, serving as president of the Tricentennial Commission.

In summer 2017, the University hosted a booth at the Tricentennial Summer Institute, which was held at the Institute of Texan Cultures. Staffers handed out information and JagSwag to teachers, counselors and others in attendance, including Mayor Ron Nirenberg, who sported his A&M-SA t-shirt in a photo on the cover of MD Monthly. In addition, Dr. Amy Porter, assistant professor of history, participated on a panel whose remarks were broadcast via Livestream.
