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 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.
