(Nov. 5, 2010)--The UTSA Office of Information Technology has launched the Bluebook website -- an easy-to-use resource with a wide range of information about UTSA courses, departments and faculty.
Students, parents and the general public have access to data including course information, syllabi, end-of-semester course evaluation results, faculty vitae, cost of attendance, required textbooks, work-study opportunities and more.
The new website is UTSA's response to Texas House Bill 2504, which mandates that all public universities make certain data publicly available.
"Bluebook will be invaluable resource to our students, particularly at registration time," said John Frederick, UTSA provost and vice president for academic affairs. "Students will be able to go online and on one website look up the course syllabus and the faculty member's vita, among other information. This resource will allow them to make informed decisions when they choose their classes."
"Bluebook is our one-stop public website for a variety of UTSA topics," said Ken Pierce, UTSA vice provost for information technology and chief information officer. "The information that is available on the site will be useful for students, parents, faculty, staff and the general public."
Bluebook is part of the Office of Information Technology Summer Splash initiative -- 11 projects that are having a positive impact on UTSA information technology.
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.
