Administrative Support Toolbox Series special event

Share this Story

(May 18, 2011)--The UTSA Human Resources Training and Development department rolled out the red carpet for graduates of the Administrative Support Toolbox Series at a special event on April 27. The fifth annual celebration recognized 22 administrative staff members who completed five courses representing more than 17 classroom training hours.

Each staff member received a certificate of achievement and special gifts. The event coincided with National Administrative Professionals Day, which recognizes the vital contributions of administrative professionals throughout the United States.

The red-carpet-themed celebration included a real red carpet, lots of paparazzi photo-taking and an inspiring keynote address by Lynn Hickey, UTSA assistant vice president and director of athletics, along with a performance by UTSA vocal majors, refreshments, activities, gifts and door prizes.

The series consists of five courses that focus on key functional areas involved in the everyday functions of UTSA administrative staff. The courses provide a high-level overview of the functions, services and resources of each area. Subject matter experts from around the university present important and useful information to class participants.

The series runs on a continual six-month cycle with one class offered monthly. This allows administrative professionals to attend class when their schedules permit and to complete the series according to their own timelines.

The Administrative Support Toolbox Series will begin again in May. The other classes in the series follow during the June-December period:

  • Financial Processing (SD239), May 25
  • Academic and Student Processing
  • Communications
  • Human Resources
  • Supervisory Skills
