Share this Story

(March 29, 2011)--The UTSA Student Leadership Institute will select approximately 60 students to participate in the LeaderShape Institute, a rare opportunity for students to discover and focus on their passion. As the first at UTSA, the institute will run May 8-13; the deadline to apply is Tuesday, March 29.

>> Apply at the LeaderShape Institute website.

The institute is for students who are not satisfied accepting the world as they know it and tired of living a would-a, should-a, could-a existence. As a leader you will no longer have a to-do list, but rather a to-be list. The action is the result of the desire and passion of the person.

Over six days in the LeaderShape Institute, students will explore what is important to them and learn how they can make a difference at UTSA, in San Antonio, in Texas or the world. All the students needs is to be aware of something they care about and the willingness to be guided as they narrow their focus and create an action plan.

Participants will be divided into groups of 10 -- or Family Clusters. Guiding, supporting and challenging these clusters will be the Cluster Facilitators. Each facilitator will apply and be selected to participate in the institute. Cluster Facilitators will be UTSA faculty, staff and advisers.

At the end of the six days, students will have a tangible blueprint for their personal action plan. LeaderShape fills their leadership toolbox and then draws out how to use those tools. The week will challenge the student and "rebuild" them into individuals with "a healthy disregard for the impossible."

For more information, contact the UTSA Student Leadership Center at 210-458-7967, in University Center Room 1.002 on the Main Campus, or "like" them on Facebook.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
