(March 29, 2010)--In a joint effort starting this week, the UTSA Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Office of the Vice President for University Advancement will kick off the Roadrunners for Life (RR4L) Student Giving Campaign, a monthlong program aimed at educating students about the value of giving back to UTSA.
"We have a great spirit of giving on campus -- so many of our students graciously support our community on behalf of the university," said Gage Paine, UTSA vice president for student affairs. "This campaign is a unique way for current students to make a lasting difference here, on their campus, and I have no doubt this will be a successful new program."
Student volunteers will give presentations at several student organization meetings and host events on campus to talk with students about the campaign and the importance of participation. Additionally, there will be a special RR4L thank-you event April 24 for students who participate in the campaign, which will be in conjunction with the Campus Activities Board's Roadrunners Late Night.
"We hope that all students at UTSA will get involved in Roadrunners for Life and help spread the word about giving and the importance of participation," said Marjie French, UTSA vice president for university advancement. "Increasing alumni and student engagement is an important step in becoming a premier public research university."
As part of Earth Week, the Evironmental Health, Safety and Risk Management department is providing on-site shredding services for the entire UTSA community.
