(June 20, 2013) -- Laura Murray, UTSA associate vice president for strategic initiatives and endowment services, has agreed to serve as interim associate vice president for alumni programs.

Murray came to UTSA in April 2009 from the University of Texas at Dallas, where she served as associate vice president and interim vice president for development and alumni relations.

She joined UTSA as associate vice president for advancement services and administration. She earned bachelor's degrees in economics and political science at Texas A&M University and is currently in the UTSA Graduate School studying for her master's in public administration.

In the near term, Murray will continue to manage several other projects in the Office of the Vice President for External Relations (VPER).

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.
