(March 10, 2011)--Registration is open now for United to Serve, a UTSA tradition and a volunteer initiative involving UT System students, faculty, staff, alumni, student organizations and friends. In its seventh year, the initiative is in an effort to engage and mobilize thousands of volunteers in their communities.
An upcoming service day is Saturday, April 2 with volunteer opportunities across the city. UTSA projects have included work at the Communities in Schools Ropes Course, barn work at the Saddle Light Center, improving Head Start centers, tree planting at Salado Creek and many more.
Each participant receives a t-shirt (while supplies last) and will be invited to Volunteer Appreciation Day activities April 13 during National Volunteer Appreciation Week.
Volunteers can sign up as individuals or as groups; faculty, staff, students, alumni, family and friends are welcome to participate. The minimum age for participation is noted on each project.
To register for volunteer service, visit the UTSA United to Serve website.

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.
