(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.

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.
That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.
Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
