Dear Colleagues,

It has been my privilege to have been part of the Student Affairs team at UTSA.  The opportunity to work closely with our students,  you and your programs will always be a very special part of my service to UTSA.  Serving in Student Affairs allowed me to connect with the pulse and heart of the campus – our students. 

I commend you for your dedication, hard work and loyalty to UTSA and our students.  Your leadership and vision have been key elements to continuing the momentum to move forward in meeting the needs of a growing campus. 

Thank you for your good work and the support you provided to me while in the various roles that I assumed over the years.  I will take this renewed perspective with me to my new post, and I believe I will be a better person because of my time with you.

I wish you and UTSA much success. 

All the best,

Ysabel Trinidad

Your Colleagues -- Make Their Day

Kudos to—

Suzy Gray, Director, Campus Recreation

“Thank you for responding to my dilemma. Matt did call me yesterday afternoon to discuss the option of having the blue dance studio open to the public during certain hours. I really appreciate the REC faculty being considerate in discussing my concerns.”                                                                                                                              -- from a very happy student
