One of Embrey’s core values is an ongoing commitment to prepare the next generation of leaders in the real estate industry. Nowhere is that more evident than our educational partnership with the University of Texas at San Antonio.
In 2015, company founder Walter Embrey Jr. pledged $1 million to UTSA’s Embrey Real Estate Finance and Development program and became the first chair of the Founder’s Council, which connects industry leaders with educational initiatives. In 2022, Embrey donated $100,000 to support scholarships for the Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Scholars program. In addition to receiving an academic scholarship, students selected for the program are paired with a mentor, attend CREW national conferences and board meetings, and serve on committees that help advance their professional development.

Job Shadow Day
Embrey participates in SA Works citywide Job Shadow Day, which provides high school students the opportunity to tour workplaces to learn about a particular industry. Immersive learning with employers demonstrates the day-to-day responsibilities of certain jobs and helps students gain clarity on workplace expectations. Experiences like this help prepare students for careers and future success.
Embrey is a member of the national and San Antonio Chapter of the Urban Land Institute, San Antonio Real Estate Council, National Multifamily Housing Council, National Apartment Association, and many others. Each organization cultivates relationships with developers, investors, architects, attorneys, government, brokers, and academia to further the mission of the multi-family sector of commercial real estate.
