(Aug. 19, 2011)--The UTSA Inclusion and Community Engagement Center will host the ICE Block Party (formerly the Cultural Connections receptions) during Roadrunner Days to welcome new and transfer students who are part of the diverse population of UTSA. Open to UTSA students, faculty and staff, the ICE Block Party is 2-4 p.m., Monday, Aug. 22 in the University Center Ballroom (1.104) on the Main Campus.
ICE is committed to fostering a campus culture that promotes active engagement through volunteerism and in which issues relating to culture, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity are addressed with sincerity and respect and in which all members of the campus community feel safe, welcomed and valued.
The ICE Block Party is an opportunity for students who self-identify as members of particular groups to meet each other. These include students who are African-American and Black, Latino/a, Asian and Pacific Islander, and GLBTQ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning).
The event will include a short program with welcoming remarks, "blocks" (breakout sessions for each identity group) and networking. Snacks and beverages will be provided as well as displays by student organizations and information on UTSA resources.
To RSVP for the ICE Block Party, visit the Roadrunner Days website, and complete the registration form. To learn more about campus diversity programs, contact the Inclusion and Community Engagement Center at 210-458-4770.
The institute will feature a performance from Eva Ybarra, the “Queen of the Accordion.” Manuel Medrano will premiere a documentary on Ybarra’s career. Two people receive free admission with a voucher available here.
