(Jan. 11, 2013) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center invites students, faculty and staff to submit nominations for the Roadrunner of the Month honor. Each month a UTSA student who exemplifies outstanding leadership qualities and contributions receives the award and is featured on UTSA Today and in the Student Affairs newsletter.
Each winner receives a certificate and his or her name is added to a permanent Roadrunner of the Month display board on the UTSA Legacy of Leadership wall in the University Center ballroom lobby.
To be considered for Roadrunner of the Month, students must meet these criteria:
Nomination forms are due at 4 p.m. the last Monday of each month. (The deadline this month is Jan. 28.) Nominations received after the deadline will be considered during the judging process for the following month. The winner will be notified and presented the award on the first Monday of the following month.

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.
