A panel of experts selected the winning entries in communications, marketing, fundraising and alumni programs. They represent the best work of more than 750 submitted entries.
UTSA received gold awards for its story on how UTSA professor Matthew Gdovin has developed a new method to kill cancer cells, the spring 2016 issue of Sombrilla magazine, the Be Counted! Campaign which provided the community with an opportunity to support UTSA's academic, research and outreach programs, and the student-led Roadrunner Memorial Garden annual giving campaign.

"Their efforts showcase the great achievements at UTSA and demonstrate the university's advancement to Tier One status. It is great to see exceptional talents recognized."
