Special Events Center

The Special Events Center serves the University and our students by providing well-organized, university-wide events to celebrate significant mileposts in the life of the University and its students, faculty, and staff. Through its work with student leadership organizations such as the UTSA Ambassadors and Honors Alliance, the Special Events Center encourages an environment of dialogue and discovery where integrity, excellence, inclusiveness, respect, collaboration, and innovation are fostered. Additionally, the Special Events Center coordinates university-wide events such as UTSA commencement ceremonies, Annual Convocation, and the Who’s Who Award Ceremony.

The UTSA Ambassadors has more than 70 volunteer members who are committed to service, leadership and integrity, and provide over 8,000 hours of service to the University each year by giving tours of the Main and Downtown campuses and assisting administrators and faculty in hosting events. The UTSA Ambassadors can be seen in action on campus at the Annual Convocation, the Information Tables at the beginning of each semester, the Fall and Spring Commencement Ceremonies, or giving campus tours for prospective students, parents, and other campus visitors. For more information, visit the UTSA Ambassadors website.

Honors Alliance is a student organization that strives to collaborate with members of various honor societies across campus to provide leadership development, volunteerism, and recognition while promoting academic integrity to the university community. Honors Alliance inducts approximately 60 members each semester from various collegiate honor societies and provides over 1,500 hours of service to the San Antonio community through food drives, holiday toy drives, Habitat for Humanity, MS Society volunteer opportunities, and Haven for Hope to name a few.
