(March 27, 2012) -- The UTSA Office of P-20 Initiatives invites UTSA faculty and staff members with children in the ninth and 10th grades to bring their young students to a special all-day event Saturday, March 31 at the UTSA Downtown Campus.

In collaboration with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, the Ready to Lead (R2L) program will present a free workshop on leadership. The program provides high school students with the tools and training they need to prepare for college.

The goal of the program is to motivate more Latino high school students to attend college, empower them to serve and lead in their communities, and instill the belief in them that a college education is achievable.

The workshop will be presented in several cities across the country with predominantly Latino populations. Since its inception in 2007, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute has assisted more than 4,300 high school students.

To reserve a seat at the workshop, contact Pamela Cervera, high school programs specialist, at 202-548-8780 or Darrell Balderrama, UTSA Office of P-20 Initiatives, at 210-458-2697.

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.
