Welcome to Student Affairs! We are glad you are here!
The Rowdy Gras Parade begins at 10:30am in the UC Paseo and leads through the UC into the UC Lawn where the event takes place from 11am-2pm. Rowdy and our students will create the parade – encourage your students to attend!
We will provide free Cajun food, t-shirts, giveaways and more! Help spread the word and encourage your students to take part in this fun and growing UTSA tradition!
As we begin a new semester, let’s all set new goals to engage in staff/faculty development regarding emergency preparedness. The UTSA Office of Emergency Management and UTSA Police Department – Crime Prevention Unit are offering many courses of interest this semester: learn about personal security and safety awareness, become a Floor Captain, interface with the National Weather Service, and learn how to help others in times of crisis, just to name a few.
Additionally, you may have noticed some changes and additions to the HR Training and Development course catalog regarding Emergency Management and Police Department sponsored trainings. In late fall, a new training category was developed for the course catalog entitled Emergency Preparedness (EP). In the past, all emergency management and Police sponsored trainings were coded under Safety (SA) or Staff Development (SD). Under the new catalog, all emergency management and PD courses will now be recorded as Emergency Preparedness (EP), and all past student history dating back to the inception of these courses have been re-coded with the EP prefix.
To register, visit MyTraining to confirm your seat and ensure you receive credit for the course.
We look forward to seeing each of you. Remember, preparedness is EVERYONE’s responsibility!
The Student Affairs Conference is back and the Staff Development Team is asking you to mark your calendars for March 6, 2015. Remember, just the one day.
