Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President for Business Affairs
Dear Business Affairs,
The start of the fall semester is on the horizon. This is one of the most exciting times of the year for our students. Many Roadrunners are beginning their academic journeys here at UTSA, while others are returning “home” to continue their studies.
Business Affairs plays a critical role in keeping our students safe, providing exceptional learning environments, coordinating important services such as dining and parking, and much more. I sincerely thank you for your efforts to ensure a smooth transition and successful experience for our students, faculty and staff.
I invite each of you to join us for a Business Affairs Let’s Chat! Virtual Town Hall on Thursday, Aug. 10. During this town hall, I will share more about the Strategic Plan Refresh process, highlight updates in the division and take time for a Q&A session.
I hope to see you all there! Go ‘Runners!
Chief Financial Officer and
Senior Vice President for Business Affairs
