(April 19, 2012) -- There will be a test of the UTSA Emergency Notification System (ENS) at 3 p.m., Wednesday, April 25. Registered users of the system will receive a text message and a corresponding email. The test is part of ongoing procedures to ensure and enhance UTSA emergency communications.

The test monitors the university's ability to communicate with students, faculty and staff who registered for the UTSA Emergency Notification System on the ASAP online information system.

System users who opted for a voice message in lieu of a text message will receive an automated phone call. Those registered for the service should note whether they receive a message or not during the test; if not, contact Emergency Management.

The ENS is the primary means to relay emergency information within the UTSA community. If an emergency occurs, a message would contain important instructions regarding safety measures and protective actions.

>> To register to receive emergency notifications or to update information, log on to the ASAP system, select the personal information tab, then select the "UTSA Emergency Notification System link". Verify or modify your information, click on the update button and registration is complete.

Connect with the UTSA Police Department on Facebook and Twitter. Utilizing these resources can help ensure you are prepared when seconds count. For more information, contact the UTSA Office of Emergency Management at 210-458-6851.

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.
