Dear Business Affairs,

As we approach the end of the spring semester, we have many exciting events and celebrations coming up!

Tomorrow, May 2, is the final event in our Leadership Spotlight Series featuring Chief Stephanie Schoenborn. I hope you will join us as she shares about her journey as UTSA's first female Chief of Police and outlines how Public Safety is actively shaping a safe and welcoming campus environment.

Please save the date for our annual Business Affairs Employee Forum on May 15. This is a special event that I look forward to each year as a way for us to connect with one another and celebrate our success. Our BA Connect Committee is planning a meaningful event with great food, activities, prizes and more.

Graduation is just around the corner. You are invited to celebrate with us on May 16 at Roadrunner Walk and on May 17 for Commencement.

Thank you, Business Affairs, for your ongoing commitment. I am so grateful for your hard work as we celebrate a successful spring semester!
