(May 18, 2011)--The University Center (UC) has published its revised fee, labor and resource rates for the 2011-2012 academic year. The rates will go into effect Sept. 1 and can be viewed in the online UC Handbook of Operating Procedures.
The UC Advisory Council (UCAC) approved fees unanimously. Before fee approval, UC staff educated the UCAC regarding current fees and provided fee benchmark comparisons. Benchmark fees were gathered from event facilities and service providers in the San Antonio community as well as university center facilities around the nation that are similar to the UC.
"These fees allow us to be wise stewards of our student-generated funds and ensure we are able to provide a wide range of services for years to come," said UC Director Lowa Mwilambwe.
The UCAC voting members are elected, appointed or selected from student organizations and the general student body through an application process. Two faculty members appointed by President Ricardo Romo also have voting privileges.

The UC fee schedule highlights are:
There are some fee increases in certain areas. They were put in place after analyzing the use of facility resources and considering wear, tear and eventual replacement of technology that is increasingly expensive. Fees are subject to change.
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.
