(Nov. 23, 2009)--The UTSA Women's Resource Center will host a home goods and toiletry drive from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4. New and gently used items for the Battered Women and Children's Shelter of San Antonio will be collected at several locations on the UTSA Tri-campuses.

>> See a list below of most needed items and UTSA drop-off locations.

Called "It's the Little Things That Count," the drive is an excellent way for the UTSA community to show concern for the less fortunate during the holidays and to provide items that women and children use regularly for daily self-care and are that not re-useable.

"We know that many victims flee their homes with nothing," said Brittany Biley, lead peer educator. "By donating these items. they will have supplies for a fresh start that they can take after leaving the shelter."

Collection boxes marked 'Women's Resource Center' will be placed in high-traffic areas across the UTSA campuses where donations can be dropped off.

These items are needed most:

  • Pillows (small or large)
  • Twin-size sheets
  • Wash cloths
  • Baby bottles (8 oz.)
  • Baby formula
  • House shoes
  • Shampoo and conditioner (especially African-American hair-care products)

UTSA researcher is a star behind the cloud

A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.

Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
