Nominations and self-nominations will be considered. The winner will be announced at the University Life Awards on April 4.

>> Apply for the UTSA Volunteer of the Year Award.

Last year's recipient, Janet Oyeteju, encourages students to apply and reflect on the importance service has played in their UTSA experience. Since receiving the award at the 2012 University Life Awards, she said the award opened opportunities for her to work with nonprofits -- something she is very passionate about. Oyeteju also received the $500 Sandra Cisneros scholarship that accompanies the award, and her picture is displayed outside the University Center ballroom on the Main Campus.

  • Students cannot be paid for the services they represent on the application.
  • Students who are or have been associated with national service programs are eligible to apply.

UTSA researcher is a star behind the cloud

A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.

Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
