UTSA educational outreach department becomes an institute
(May 13, 2016) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) believes children as early as pre-kindergarten need to be thinking about college, and it's developed a wide network of partners to support that goal.
Consistent with that mission, the UTSA Office of P-20 Initiatives has been renamed as the UTSA Institute for P-20 Initiatives. The name change reflects the institute's service-oriented focus.
"Becoming an institute provides credibility in the academic and external community by better reflecting the depth of our P-20 service initiatives at UTSA," said Joseph Kulhanek, assistant vice president for P-20 Initiatives. "This name change will help us broaden our top-tier programs statewide by offering advantages as we apply for grant funding, develop new collaborations and promote the university's impact throughout Texas."
The UTSA Institute for P-20 Initiatives provides children from pre-K through college and their families with information to encourage postsecondary education. P-20 works closely with area school districts, developing transition and bridge activities and implementing college readiness policies. It has more than 24 programs currently underway for a variety of age groups.
Its Mobile GO Center, for example, travels all over South Texas to give prospective students and families access to college and career-related services. The South Texas Education Project provides tools to independent school districts that focus on curriculum alignment and content delivery methodologies.
The institute also works with educational service centers on college readiness issues and professional development programs for teachers.------------------------------
