Interim Director of Infrastructure Services and Deputy CIO of the UTSA Office of Information Technology Anthony Espinoza served as a panelist at the UTSA Tuition and Fee Student forum. The event, which was open to the public, was held on November 13th in the Retama Auditorium (UC 2.02.02) from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

As one of three Tuition and Fee Proposal Committee Meetings, the Student Forum enabled students and stakeholders from various areas across the university to discuss the proposed tuition and fee increases. Input from the university community would be used to help create a proposal to determine the rates for fees not set by the Texas Legislature. The forum explored topics such as parking, and the Automated Services and Computer Access Charge.

Espinoza was present to answer potential questions about the latter topic, which is a charge assigned to all registered students. This charge subsidizes the costs associated with the upkeep and operations of the infrastructure, electronic and online services of the university.

The panel, which was moderated by Associate Vice Provost of Financial Affairs Lenora Chapman, also consisted of other representatives from across the university including:

  • Taylor Eighmy, Ph.D., UTSA president
  • Erika Cox, director of Student Enrollment Services
  • Diana Martinez, director of Scholarships
  • Clay Haverland, assistant vice provost of Campus Services,
  • Gerard Sanders, dean of the College of Business
  • Jackie Hobson, director of Student Affairs Budget and Financial Services
  • JoAnn Browning, Ph.D. P.E., dean of Engineering
  • Nicholas Liegl, Senior Associate Athletics Director for Business and Finance

 “I am thankful for the opportunity to serve our students and support the university’s goals,” said Espinoza.
