JANUARY 21, 2022 — The UTSA Carlos Alvarez College of Business has launched a new Student Success Center to enhance support services for business students. The center will combine already successful programming in the college to provide a one-stop resource center for business students to achieve their academic, personal and professional goals.
“We are excited to launch this new center in the Alvarez College of Business that will provide invaluable resources for our business students,” said Pamela C. Smith, interim dean and Bodenstedt Chair in the Alvarez College of Business. “This collaborative center allows us to connect with our students throughout their academic journey in support of UTSA’s classroom to career initiative.”
As part of UTSA’s new Academic Success District, the Alvarez Student Success Center will offer tutoring, professional development workshops, experiential learning programs, leadership and academic programs as well as career services for undergraduate and graduate business students.
“Student success has always been a priority in the Alvarez College of Business, but now it has a collaborative home,” said Rosa Garza-Girdy, assistant dean of undergraduate studies. “We’ve combined several successful college resources and strategically located the center in the main corridor of the Business Building to enhance accessibility for our students.”
Programming offered by the center includes the following.
“The mission of our college is to transform our business students into business professionals,” said Smith. “As part of this endeavor we’ll be able to more fully prepare Alvarez students to thrive not only academically, but also professionally.”
A formal dedication for the Alvarez Student Success Center will be planned once renovations are complete, and campus operations return to normal. The center will be located in BB 2.01.08
