UTSA receives $822,000 from Kleberg Foundation to enhance scientific research
Date:3/12/2008

UTSA President Ricardo Romo used the occasion of the dedication of the Robert J. Kleberg, Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Commons on the Universitys 1604 Campus to announce an $822,000 gift from the charitable foundation that honors the two Texans.

For some time, we have wanted to create a lasting tribute to the Klebergs legacy of philanthropy, said Romo.

It seemed only fitting, he said, to use the dedication ceremony as the time also to announce the latest gift to UTSA from the Robert J. Kleberg, Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation. The $822,000 gift will support the purchase of three state-of-the-art electron microscopes, including a scanning, a tunneling and an atomic force microscope. While housed in the College of Sciences, the new laboratory equipment will be made available for multi-disciplinary research ranging from physics and engineering to archaeology and art conservation and preservation.

These microscopes, which represent some of the most important tools in modern science, will form the nucleus of a groundbreaking research unit that will be unique not only here in San Antonio but also in the entire state of Texas, President Romo told the audience gathered on campus for the Kleberg Commons dedication Tuesday, March 11.

Other speakers at the ceremony included John Frederick, UTSAs new provost and vice president for academic affairs, and Helen K. Groves, president of the Robert J. Kleberg, Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation and the only child of the Klebergs.

Groves was joined by UTSA Development Board chairman Tom C. Frost in unveiling a commemorative plaque honoring the memory of her parents and celebrating the generosity of the foundation and its co
