Share this Story

(April 11, 2013) -- UTSA will observe National Volunteer Week with April 23-24 events to celebrate people doing extraordinary things through service. The events will showcase the impact of volunteers at UTSA and in the community.

On April 23, the UTSA Gallery of Student Service will feature a display about service events at the University Center first floor on the Main Campus. On April 24, the Inclusion and Community Engagement Center will host Volunteer Appreciation Day at the University Center Paseo on the Main Campus; UTSA community members can thank volunteers, while they enjoy free ice cream

UTSA Gallery of Student Service

Students and student organizations are invited to showcase their service events from this year to the UTSA community. Students and student organizations are asked to create a visual representation of their service and the agencies they have worked with. They can focus on one or multiple projects for the display. Displays can feature items such as posters, slideshows, collages or tri-fold display boards. The displays will be at the University Center first floor (near the bookstore) from Tuesday, April 23 through Wednesday, April 24. To register yourself or a student organization, complete a form at RowdyLink on the Volunteer Services page.
UTSA Volunteer Appreciation Day

The Inclusion and Community Engagement Center will host a Volunteer Appreciation Day event from 2 to 4 p.m., Wednesday, April 24 at the University Center Paseo on the Main Campus. The get-together is to thank UTSA students, faculty and staff for their volunteer service. Free ice cream will be provided.

UTSA students, student organizations, faculty and staff make a huge impact on the San Antonio community by giving thousands of hours to community agencies, neighborhood associations, schools, churches and more. Both events are a chance to celebrate volunteer service and think about new ways to give back.

-------------------------------

Established in 1974, National Volunteer Week focuses national attention on the impact and power of volunteerism and service as an integral aspect of civic leadership. Observed nationally this year April 21-27, the week draws the support and endorsement of the president, Congress, governors, mayors and municipal leaders, as well as corporate and community groups across the country.

Did You Know?

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.
