Routine days on campus, keeping server and network services active for the classroom/labs. Lots of Teams and Zoom meet-ups with individual faculty and students. The occasional off-campus run to drop off this or that as folks ask.

The risk management and life safety (RMLS) team has been integral in keeping our campus up and running during the period of telecommuting, by conducting fire prevention and equipment inspections, hot work permits, insurance claims, and support for campus construction projects. Additionally, the RMLS team has assisted with occupational safety, PPE training, and job hazard assessments for our essential on-campus employees. Well done, RMLS team in the Office of Risk & Emergency Management! (Pictured: RMLS team working to support campus operations at events before COVID-19.)

Joe Alderete, Juan Villarreal, Eddy Baggerman, Ryan Troxell, James Villanueva, & Juan Morales with Facilities help deliver food to the Roadrunner Pantry. Since March 10th, this rotating team has had an amazing attitude in helping the cause. Once an order is scheduled for pick up, they alternate to drive the truck, or two, all the way to the San Antonio Food Bank and help load thousands of pounds of food. Once they arrive on campus, they help the Student Union Operations Team unload the truck(s) with dollies, palette jacks, and forklifts.

This support started from the top of the Office of Facilities Senior Executive Leadership Team. Since March, this team has delivered 8 shipments of food weighing 41,955 pounds to the Roadrunner Pantry! We absolutely could NOT have ordered this food from the SAFB resource without them! I truly appreciate everything they continue to do each and every time. I can always depend on them and can be assured that when we see them at the Student Union, that it is with huge smiles and huge hearts.
