(June 15, 2011)--The UTSA Office of Legal Affairs announces two staff changes to better support the university. Effective in May, Nora Ochoa Evans was appointed senior associate counsel for research. As a result of Evans' new position, Kim Basil will serve as associate counsel for transactions. Basil joined the legal affairs office June 13 and will handle the university's non-research transactional issues.
"We are very excited about these changes to our office and are so pleased to welcome Kim to the legal affairs team," said Gail Jensen, UTSA assistant chief legal officer and associate counsel. "I know the UTSA community will welcome Kim's enthusiasm and fresh perspective on contracts and transactional issues."
Basil has more than 10 years' experience as in-house counsel in companies of all sizes. She handled complex transactional and regulatory issues for The Performance Companies in San Antonio, Alcatel-Lucent in Plano, Texas, and XO Communications in Dallas, Texas, and Denver, Colo. Basil remembers her first visit to UTSA was a trip to the library to work on a project for a high school class, and is pleased to join UTSA to assist in its continued growth and development.
All current registered student organizations are invited and encouraged to participate in the Showcase which allows all new students an opportunity to learn more about the involvement opportunities and student life at UTSA.
