“ATD is the perfect venue for Higher Education practitioners to share knowledge, celebrate successes, and work through challenges with each other. The support and resources we gain from the ATD network help us provide our students with innovative and proven strategies which direct them onto successful pathways.”
–Dr. Hector Gonzales, President, Southwest Texas Junior College
Who We Are

Our main campus is located in Uvalde, a city of 15,000 located in the foothills of Texas Hill Country. Uvalde is approximately 70 miles west of San Antonio and 70 miles east of the Mexican border. Additional campuses are located in the border cities of Del Rio and Eagle Pass. We also operate instructional facilities in Crystal City, Pearsall, and Hondo. SWTJC also provides online instruction and distance education links to twenty-two school districts. No other state community college provides educational resources in an area this large.
