(Nov. 7, 2011) -- The UTSA Tuition and Fee Proposal Committee will host meetings in November to review and discuss the tuition and fee rates proposed for academic years 2013 and 2014. The committee consisting of students and faculty members meets in a biennial process for setting deregulated tuition and fees.
Open to the public, two meetings will be in the University Center Travis Room (2.202) on the UTSA Main Campus:
In addition to the public meetings, committee members will participate in other programs aimed at producing a measurable increase to the four-year graduation rate and proposed changes to tuition and fees. After input from the committee, a report will be submitted by Dec. 15 to the UT System Board of Regents to be considered and approved at the regents' March 2012 meeting.

A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.
Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
Did you know? Sandhu, a world-renowned cybersecurity expert, holds 30 patents, has authored more than 250 papers and been cited more than 30,000 times.
