A brief description of the native plant program, policy, or practice:

Landscaping projects in UTSA adhere to the guidelines of the UTSA Campus Master Plan, which provides guidelines for these projects including a list of plant materials consisting mostly of native plants. The Master Plan Landscape Guidelines can be found in:
http://www.utsa.edu/masterplan/pdfs/MP_Landscape_Guidelines.pdf

UTSA has also established a Master Plan Management Council (MPMC). The MPMC is charged with providing advice and recommendations regarding the potential impact of projects on the campus environment and civic structure. The MPMC plays an advisory role through project execution, providing guidance through conceptual design, programming, design development, and construction to achieve a high quality environment and implement the intent of the Campus Master Plan. The responsibilities of the MPMC include reviewing any proposed facility change that could impact the civic structure of the University as described in the 2009 Campus Master Plan. These may include new construction, facility additions and renovations, landscaping or infrastructure projects, and site development. More information about the MPMC can be found on:
