(May 26, 2011)--UTSA Staff Council nominations are coming soon. Watch your email on June 6 and nominate yourself or a co-worker in your vice president's area to represent you on the UTSA Staff Council for the next two years. You can be a voice at UTSA by participating in the Staff Council nomination process.

"We are looking for dedicated staff who are able to make a two-year commitment as active Staff Council members," said Cie Gee, UTSA Staff Council chair. "The Staff Council meets once each month. Membership entitles service on at least one Staff Council committee. Members get to network with other UTSA staff, discuss important issues and participate in other activities."

The UTSA Staff Council is an advisory body through which UTSA staff members convey information and make recommendations to President Ricardo Romo regarding staff-related interests and concerns. It is charged by the UTSA president and the UT System Board of Regents with continually improving university operations and the well-being of UTSA staff.

A request for nominations will go to all benefits-eligible staff members on June 6 and will be open for approximately one week. Nominees will be contacted by Staff Council Elections Committee members once nominations close and asked to accept the nomination and responsibilities involved in being a Staff Council representative in order to have his or her name placed on the ballot. Nominees must be UTSA benefits-eligible classified or Administrative and Professional employees.

Voting for new 2011-2013 Staff Council members is scheduled for late June. New representatives will begin their two-year terms in August 2011.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

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.
