Help register our community to vote: Become a volunteer deputy registrar


Share this Story

(Aug. 16, 2012) -- As part of the city project SA Votes 2012, UTSA students, faculty and staff can help serve the San Antonio community by registering citizens to vote.

As a volunteer deputy registrar, participants will further the university mission of public service and community engagement -- and can participate directly in a nonpartisan campuswide voter registration drive.

Faculty and staff members who participate in the training will be provided with "Register Here to Vote" signs to post outside their offices. Eligible faculty, staff, students or campus visitors can stop by these offices to register to vote.

Volunteers must attend one 30-minute training session at the Bexar County Elections Warehouse, 1381 Brazos. UTSA will provide free shuttles to and from two Aug. 28 training sessions; pickup and return drop-off will be at the Convocation Center on the Main Campus.

The full training session schedule is:

  • Saturday, Aug. 25, 10 a.m.
  • Tuesday, Aug. 28, 10 a.m. -- UTSA shuttle (32 seats), reserve seat at 210-458-4009
  • Tuesday, Aug. 28, 6 p.m. -- UTSA shuttle (32 seats), reserve seat at 210-458-4009
  • Wednesday, Sept. 5, 10 a.m.
  • Saturday, Sept. 8, 10 a.m.
  • Tuesday, Sept. 11, 10 a.m.

UTSA employees can participate during regular work hours if the time is made up within a reasonable period of time; employees must make arrangements with a supervisor. Additionally, employees can use vacation time for training during work hours, request leave without pay or participate outside of work hours.

>> Reserve a seat at a required 30-minute training session (and/or a seat on a shuttle) by calling the UTSA Office of External Affairs at 210-458-4009, and leave name and phone number.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
