(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.

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.
