(May 27, 2014) -- Seventeen UTSA administrative professionals were honored at the annual celebration of the Administrative Support Toolbox Series training program April 23. The eighth annual event with a Fiesta theme was hosted by the UTSA HR Training and Development department and recognized administrative staff who completed five courses representing more than 17 classroom training hours.

The celebration coincided with National Administrative Professionals Day, which recognizes the vital contributions of administrative professionals throughout the United States. The event included a performance by the UTSA Student Mariachi Ensemble, refreshments, door prizes, activities and networking.

The Administrative Support Toolbox Series consists of five courses plus an orientation session that focuses on key functional areas carried out by UTSA administrative staff. The courses provide a high-level overview of the functions, services and resources of each area. Subject matter experts present important information to class participants.

This series runs on a continual six-month cycle with one class offered each month. This allows administrative professionals to attend class when their schedule permits and to complete the series according to their own timeline. Because class information is updated each time it is presented, past graduates are encouraged to attend class as a refresher to stay up to date.

The Administrative Support Toolbox Series will present the Supervision Class (SD 241) on May 28 and then will begin the five-course rotation starting in June:

  • Academic/Student Processing (SD 245) June
  • Human Resources Processing (SD 240) July
  • Note: No class in August
  • Orientation (SD 228) September
  • Financial Processing (SD 239) October
  • Communications and Marketing (SD 238) November
  • Supervision (SD 241) December
