(March 10, 2011)--UTSA implemented the UTSA service and civic participation program Your Time Counts at UTSA in 2007. The program recognizes UTSA community members who contribute hundreds of volunteer service hours each month that help many organizations succeed. The deadline to log volunteer hours from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2010, is Friday, March 25.
Adults age 18 and older logging 100, 250 and 500 hours of volunteer service will be honored at the Your Time Counts at UTSA award ceremony and luncheon hosted by President Ricardo Romo and are presented with the bronze, silver or gold award lapel pin, along with a personalized letter of thanks from the president of the United States. The program is a way for individual efforts to be recognized, along with the collective community impact of UTSA and the UT System.
UTSA President Ricardo Romo encourages UTSA students, faculty and staff to log their service hours at the UT System President's Service Awards website. At the site, scroll down to the UTSA logo and register as a UTSA volunteer.
Volunteers also can register at the UTSA Office of External Affairs website with instructions on how to log volunteer hours. Select "Your Time Counts at UTSA" links in the left column.
