(Oct. 14, 2011) -- UTSA and the Greater San Antonio Advisory Board, a member of the Texas Diversity Council, will host the second annual Greater San Antonio Young Women's Leadership Symposium from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 15 at the University Center second floor on the Main Campus. The event theme is "Make Your Dreams a Reality: Start Now!"

The goal of the event is to promote the development of future leaders by providing young women access to mentors. It will focus on leadership, college and career planning, diversity, advocacy for girls and more. Lisa Dollinger, chief communications officer of Clear Channel Communications, will present the keynote address.

"The TXDC remains diligent in working to achieve its mission of providing outreach efforts to our youth that inspire them to achieve without limits and to become successful leaders in their schools and communities," said Angeles Valenciano, vice president of business development for the Texas Diversity Council. "On behalf of Dennis Kennedy, our CEO and founder, we are grateful to The University of Texas at San Antonio for their support of this program and all our efforts."

The symposium will include three workshops: Forget the Damsel in Distress... Be Your Own Hero, The Real Value of a College Degree: More Than Just the Benjamins ($) and Table Etiquette.

Hosted throughout the state by the Texas Diversity Council, the Young Women's Leadership Symposium can help transform a community into a more inclusive environment where young women are encouraged to reach their full potential.

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.
