UTSA Outreach Council

Community ConnectThe UTSA Outreach Council was established in 2007 by President Ricardo Romo. The purpose is to collect, analyze, and disseminate engagement/outreach activity information throughout the institution; to promote collaboration where outreach interests may overlap; to foster community engagement and the exchange of ideas; and to provide a forum for community representatives to express their assessment of the institution's community engagement activities.

The council includes representatives from university departments and colleges as well as community representatives from various sectors. The council meets twice a year and is chaired by the Vice President for Community Services.
