(March 14, 2013) -- Many UTSA departments are preparing for spring and summer camps and programs for youths. For faculty and staff members, volunteers and student workers working in UTSA programs involving direct contact with minors, it is essential to be appropriately updated and trained in accordance with the requirements of the SB1414 Child Protection Training law.

Training is required once every two years, however, the affected employees and volunteers may want to refresh their knowledge annually. Any volunteer acting as a guest speaker, entertainer or person who visits for a limited purpose or limited time or who has no direct and unsupervised interaction with minors is not required to take the training.

>> The class SB1414 Child Protection Training is available on the MyTraining system. Read details about the required online training, instructions for accessing the system and the reporting requirements on the UTSA Office of Institutional Compliance and Risk Services website.

For more information, contact Erica Garcia, UTSA Office of Institutional Compliance and Risk Services, at 210-458-6621.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
