(Nov. 10, 2009)--The Leadership Challenge program in the UTSA College of Business Center for Professional Excellence will host a kick-off event for a yearlong fundraising program to support local families with children battling cancer. The kick-off, a fall carnival, is 6 to 9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 13 at the Convocation Center west lawn on the UTSA Main Campus.
The fundraising program is part of a collaboration of UTSA and local high schools. The Leadership Challenge program will host three fundraisers during the academic year. Participating organizations will host fundraising and social events throughout the year including concerts, fashion shows, parties and athletics competitions. The activities will culminate with the "For The Kids UTSA Dance Marathon," where university and community groups will join with families affected by pediatric cancer.
Members of UTSA registered student organizations can volunteer to host a booth (event or food) in exchange for community service hours. UTSA events will be coordinated by the Leadership Challenge class.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
