UTSA Senior Vice President Selected to Serve on United Way Advisory Council

July 11, 2023


Last month, the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County Board of Directors unanimously approved a nomination for Veronica Salazar to serve on the United Way Advisory Council. Salazar serves as the Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President for Business Affairs at UTSA. The United Way volunteer role provides additional opportunities to further Salazar’s and the university’s presence in San Antonio, while supporting ways to give back to the local community.  

As a council member, Salazar will serve as an advisor to the United Way leadership and board on strategic issues, support the annual campaign and be an advocate for the United Way in sharing their story with others. Salazar was selected for a three-year term on the Advisory Council, beginning July 1, 2023.

“UTSA has a long-standing and meaningful relationship with the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County that is reflective of our shared commitment to invest in and support our local community,” said UTSA Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President for Business Affairs Veronica Salazar. “I am honored to be selected to serve on the advisory council and to support both the United Way and UTSA as we work to respond to community needs and impact future generations.”

In addition to her role as an advisory council member, Salazar agreed to serve as the United Way Public Sector Division Chair Volunteer. She will provide essential leadership and support for the annual United Way Campaign in creating and maintaining working relationships with volunteers and organizations within the community. In her role as Public Sector Division Chair, she will oversee the organization, implementation and execution of employee drives for three major Public Campaigns: the City of San Antonio Charitable Campaign, the State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) and the Bexar County Charitable Campaign.

UTSA partners annually with United Way on the SECC. This campaign allows employees of state agencies, junior and community colleges, and universities throughout Texas to donate to a number of local, statewide or national charities in a one-time gift or through payroll deduction.

This fall, Salazar will work closely with UTSA leadership to bring together employees from throughout the university to participate in the SECC and give back to the local San Antonio community, including three organizations at UTSA: the UTSA First Generation and Transfer Center, Roadrunner Pantry and the Fostering Educational Success Center.
