(July 24, 2013) -- The UTSA Office of Student Life announces the appointment of Daniel Gockley as director of housing and residence life, effective July 22.

"It was important to me to join an institution committed to students and student success, and it's clear that there are exciting things happening at UTSA. The drive to achieve Tier One status is clearly evident."
