UTSA’s State Employee Charitable Campaign is right around the corner, and you can help!
The State Employee Charitable Campaign, the state program for workplace giving and an easy way for employees to support their favorite charities, will be hosting an online silent auction with a twist! This year organizers are asking staff and faculty members to donate arts, crafts, services or time to be auctioned off to another employee. Items already donated include:

The UTSA Art Collection is offering coffee, a tour, and discussion of many of the key pieces in the collection.
Facilities is offering a tour of the solar panels atop the Student Union.
Hopefully, they will be adding music and art lessons (and artwork!) from other departments.

Now is the perfect time to consider how your office, department, or you can be part of this turbo-charged auction. Call or send your ideas to Melissa May at x4204.
Facilities Project - Core Buildings Chase Panel Replacement Project
The Facilities Project Management team is overseeing a multi-year project to replace the chase panels in all of the original core campus buildings.

The JPL was selected for the first phase since a project was already ongoing in the Media Center and because there are less patrons in the library during the summer months.

Work began on the 2nd floor of the JPL last week. Thirty chase panels are scheduled to be replaced during this phase and associated noise will include drilling and sawing. Crews will be working in the JPL during the morning hours through August 15.

Tucson Skirts International Law in Refusing to Reinstate Mexican American Studies
by  Roberto Rodriguez - Truthout | Pub: 07/16
Liliana Patricia Saldaña, a professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio, is part of the Texas ethnic studies struggle. “[It] sounds like Tucson is trying to make MAS irrelevant, whereas the program that was banned was rooted in Indigenous and decolonial epistemologies,” she said, adding that while some programs can be relevant, they can still, ultimately, be assimilationist. This has always been the prevalent aspect “in the culture of US schooling,” and not necessarily the goal of impacted communities.
