After 15 years of service to the UTSA community, Bill Angrove, assistant vice provost for distance learning and academic technology, is leaving UTSA to assume duties as associate vice president for distance learning at Sam Houston State University. A farewell reception, open to the UTSA community, is 2-4 p.m., Wednesday, April 1 in the University Center Harris Room (2.212) on the Main Campus. Angrove's many contributions to UTSA include the development and expansion of distance learning vehicles and playing an instrumental role in establishing the Lynn Whipple Angrove Memorial Endowed Scholarship.
Recycling is easier than it has ever been before at UTSA, and it is improving all the time. The program has been successful because of cooperation from the UTSA community. For the recycling program, the Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management (EHSRM) set up collection stations in the UTSA mailrooms for printcartridges and small batteries. Recycling eliminates non-biodegradables, plastics and metals from regular trash to avoid sending them to landfills. Faculty, staff and students can do their part by sending printer cartridges and small batteries (put in a brown envelope) to the campus mailroom, where EHRSM staff will pick them up.
