The event is free and open to the public.

The event will be a discussion of how to observe and assess classroom behaviors that may be examples of incivility or may be more serious signs of mental health issues.

  • Thomas Baez, director of counseling services

  • Dianne Hengst, director of student disability services
  • Panel moderator: Ann Eisenberg, professor of psychology and Honors College associate dean of faculty

The panelists will discuss:

  • What is the cause of incivility in the classroom?
  • When is this behavior more than incivility?
  • When does it become a mental health concern?

Attendees will learn about:

  • What to do about student behaviors that are concerning
  • UTSA resources
  • Who to consult
  • How to manage your stress in a challenging situation

The discussion will be based on real classroom scenarios. There also will be group discussion based on real classroom scenarios and an opportunity to ask questions of the panelists about situations that many may have encountered.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

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.
