(Feb. 16, 2010)--The UTSA Alumni Association will host a Connections Luncheon featuring former Mayor Phil Hardberger as the guest speaker at 11:45 a.m, Wednesday, March 10 at San Antonio Petroleum Club, 8620 N. New Braunfels at Cee Gee Lane.
Hardberger is a former Air Force pilot, Peace Corps executive, trial lawyer, justice of the Fourth Court of Appeals and sailor. As mayor, Hardberger had a major impact on San Antonio.
His initiatives for the city were far-sighted and far-reaching: support of sustainable energy projects and environmental upgrades to the city's public spaces, notably improvements and extension of the beloved San Antonio River Walk. His lasting legacy is the creation of Voelcker Farms as a citizens' park, recently named Hardberger Park in his honor.
Join us for lunch and hear about the latest adventures of the former mayor in a session titled, "Phun With Phil!" Reservations for Alumni Association members and UTSA students are $20, $25 for nonmembers.
Connections Luncheons offer a way for UTSA alumni and other San Antonio community members to network, establish new relationships, renew acquaintances and learn about timely topics. Luncheons are held quarterly in various locations with programs and speakers of interest to UTSA alumni and the community.

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.
This exhibit includes prints by 25 Latino and Latina artists who worked in collaboration with a master printer in the print studio at the UTSA Department of Art and Art History. It runs through Oct. 12.
