Dear Business Affairs Familia,

This has been a busy and fast semester! Throughout the fall, I have enjoyed spending more time on the Southwest Campus, seeing many of you at UTSA football games and enjoying special events together such as Hot Chocolate and Holiday Cheer last week.

Later this month, I look forward to seeing many of you at your upcoming area holiday celebrations. I hope you will each have time to connect with one another and reflect on the successes within our areas. In the coming week, I will also share an update on our Points of Pride website. Each semester we focus on these points of pride as a way to celebrate the many accomplishments throughout Business Affairs and recognize our impact on the larger UTSA community.

Looking forward to the spring, there are several exciting events coming up in January. First, I am excited for the grand opening of San Pedro I, our new School of Data Science and National Security Collaboration Center, in early January. You can also look forward to a Let’s Chat! Town Hall for Business Affairs early in the semester to discuss our ongoing strategic planning efforts and to announce the Divisional award winner for 2022.

Thank you for another successful semester, Business Affairs!
