(Sept. 13, 2010)--The UTSA Undergraduate Orientation Advisory Board (OAB) is seeking proposals for modifications to orientation programming for the 2010-2011 academic year.
Proposals for orientation sessions for students entering UTSA in the spring 2011, summer 2011 and fall 2011 are due Sept. 30, 2010, to George Norton, UTSA assistant vice president for student affairs, undergraduate admissions, orientation and family programs.
The OAB is chaired by Fred Hample, executive director for student affairs operations, UTSA Downtown Campus, and consists of representatives from teaching faculty, Academic Advising, Testing Services, Academic Support and Undergraduate Studies, Downtown Campus, New Student Admissions, Residence Life, Business Affairs, Orientation and Family Programs, student representatives and University Development.
The Orientation Advisory Board will respond to proposals with recommendations during October 2010 and as part of their deliberations may communicate with or hear presentations from proposal authors. The OAB makes final recommendations to George Norton and Gage Paine, UTSA vice president for student affairs.
There is no mandated format for proposal submissions, however previously successful proposals have generally addressed these topics:
E-mail proposals to Canda Brown, Office of Admissions. For more information, call 210-458-7523.
