Share this Story

(Aug. 25, 2010)--The UTSA community includes faculty, staff, students and visitors on campus. As with any community, there may be times when you become concerned with the behavior of another community member. Examples of concerning behavior include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Written materials are submitted that contain wording that seems alarming or out of context.
  • Actions or comments are noticeably and significantly different than the person's typical behavior (i.e., decreased stability, increasing irritability).
  • Increasingly withdrawn or moody, or the person has not been seen or heard from for a period of time that is out of the ordinary
  • A community member may not be respecting appropriate personal boundaries (i.e., inappropriate communications or stalking) in a manner that makes another uncomfortable.

An interdisciplinary partnership that includes staff members from the Office of Student Life, Counseling Services, Office of Academic Affairs, Office of Human Resources and the UTSA Police Department (PD), is in place to respectfully, confidentially and professionally respond to university community members who may have such concerns.

For non-emergencies, if you are concerned about the behavior of a UTSA community member, you can electronically report your concerns at the UTSA Behavioral Concerns Assistance website.

While it is preferred that reports include contact information, all anonymous reports will be investigated. Best efforts will be made to keep your report confidential in accordance with applicable laws.

The UTSA PD provides a 24-hour telephone line (210-458-4242) that also may be used to report a threat of violence or behavioral concern. This number should not be used for emergency situations. Any person reporting an emergency on campus should immediately call 911 from a UTSA phone or 210-458-4911 from a cell phone or other non-UTSA phone.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
