'Making Your Voices Heard' Roundtable is Nov. 13

By James Benavides
Public Affairs Specialist

(Nov. 9, 2007)--Is voting enough? What makes an educated voter? Does your vote count?

Questions such as these will be discussed by a panel of college students at the "Making Your Voices Heard" Roundtable from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 13 in the John Peace Library Building Assembly Room (4.03.08) on the 1604 Campus. The event is free and open to all.

Hosted by the MATT.org Student Voices Project (Mexicans and Americans Thinking Together), UTSA Mexico Center, UTSA Department of Political Science and Geography, and UTSA Hispanic Student Association, the roundtable will gather students from UTSA, Trinity University, St. Mary's University, Our Lady of the Lake University and University of the Incarnate Word to present their views on civic participation and responsibility.

Two students from each university will make up the student panel with moderators Harriett Romo, director of the UTSA Mexico Center; Mansour El-Kikhia, chair of the UTSA Department of Political Science and Geography; and Lionel Sosa, CEO of MATT.org. The moderators will pose questions to engage the students on subjects of personal and social responsibility.

"The UTSA Mexico Center is proud to collaborate with the MATT.org Student Voices Project," said Romo. "This is an important way to engage students in civic concerns, which is a major goal of the UTSA Mexico Center. Students are our future decision makers and will play an important role in national and global politics. Their solutions and bilateral policy recommendations can enhance civic participation to address problems on both sides of the border."
