UTSA State Employee Charitable Campaign
Running during October, the 2010 UTSA State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) is the workplace giving campaign for State of Texas employees including state universities and colleges. The University of Texas at San Antonio participates in the SECC with the coordination of donations managed by the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County.
Last year, UTSA had 91-percent participation in SECC. This year we have the same goal. So, let's do it again in 2010! Remember, with SECC everyone matters.

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.
