(March 21, 2018) -- More than 1,400 students, faculty, staff, alumni and supporters of The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) will make a difference in the community on Saturday, March 24 during UTSA’s Day of Service. The annual tradition, which will kick off a Year of Service by the university community, honors the inauguration of UTSA’s sixth president, Taylor Eighmy, and advances his vision for UTSA as an urban serving university.
UTSA's Day of Service will begin at 8:30 a.m. in Bill Miller Plaza at the UTSA Downtown Campus. Service projects will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will continue throughout the day.
“I’m excited to see so many Roadrunners coming together to give back to our city,” said President Eighmy. “We are all a part of this great community. Spending a few hours lending a helping hand is a big investment to the betterment of San Antonio and key to being civically engaged as students, faculty, staff and alumni of this great urban serving university.”
UTSA's Day of Service will begin at the Downtown Campus with remarks from President Eighmy, First Lady Peggy Eighmy and San Antonio District 5 City Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales. Following a breakfast, volunteers will travel to various service agencies to participate in one of 30 community service projects throughout San Antonio.
