By Tim Brownlee
Assistant Director of Public Affairs

(Nov. 15, 2006)--The UTSA Office of Student Activities and the Office of Institutional Diversity are the co-sponsors of UTSA Diversity Month in November. With the theme, "All Different. All Roadrunners," the month's activities celebrate the cultural traditions of the many groups in the UTSA community.

The highlight of the celebration is a Nov. 15 culture fair with a showcase event at the 1604 Campus. Other activities during the month include panel discussions, lectures, a film screening and displays at the 1604 and Downtown campuses.

The highlight event is the Diversity Fair, "Celebrate UTSA!" from 4 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 15 in the Convocation Center, 1604 Campus. The event was scheduled to be outside on the lawn, but was moved inside because of windy conditions. Activities will include food samples, music, information tables and a showcase of music, dance, skits and cultural traditions.
