The OIT Customer Relations and Communications team and Student Computing Services met hundreds of UTSA students this week at Roadrunner Days events to promote technology services available to them.

Students who stopped by our table received OIT gear and information on the resources available to them through OIT. Student computer labs, mobile printing, and the Student Innovation Coalition, are just a few of the resources available to students highlighted this week.

We encourage students, staff, and faculty to “like,” “follow,” and “connect” with us on social media to receive great information from OIT such as job postings, our latest project updates, and technology tips!

Congratulations to the Recent Graduates!



A​ngel Olivarez, Project Coordinator at OIT received her M.S. in Non Profit Management from Our Lady of the Lake University

Dalinda Hanna, Webmaster at OIT received her M.I.S.M. in Computer and Information Systems Security/Information Assurance from Keller Graduate School

Rosalind Ong de Treviño, Technical Writer at OIT, received her M. Ed. In Educational Leadership and Policy Study from UTSA.
 
All three graduates worked full-time while completing their degree requirements, an aspect the Ong De Trevino said helped her solidify the connection between the theories learned in the classroom and the practices in the field. Hanna said, “With a full time job, kids, and school, I truly do not remember sleeping much.”
 
Although balancing work, school, and family present a challenge while pursuing a degree, opportunities such as researching, gaining new skills, and growing a network of peers with similar interests can make it an exceptional experience.

OIT Provides Training to Peer Mentors



With the new academic year approaching, many student workers are returning to campus for training. The introduction of the Academic Inquiry and Scholarship course for new UTSA freshman created peer mentor positions for students who have an interest in mentoring fellow students.

 

Peer mentoring orientation and training was held Thursday, August 21 at UTSA Main Campus. OIT was invited to train the peer mentors on new student technology on campus, specifically EARN and DegreeWorks. The tools, which are part of the Graduation Rate Improvement Plan (GRIP) integrated advising tools, aim to assist students to graduate in 4-years. During the training, peer mentors learned to check on flags (progress notifications) for their mentees in EARN and how to view degree audits and create student plans in DegreeWorks.

 

For more information visit the OIT GRIP projects webpage.
