Beginning new traditions in the UTSA College of Business, the Business Student Council made a $3,000 gift to the college’s Ernst & Young Leadership Suites. The gift marked the first time that a business student organization has given back to the college financially.
“Each week we come into the Ernst & Young Leadership Suites for our meetings, and we wondered what it would take to get our names on the donor wall,” said Kenneth Martinez, president of the Business Student Council and a senior management science major. “The Business Student Council supports student professionalism, and this seemed like a perfect opportunity for us to give back to college.”
The students raised the money by selling College of Business T-shirts and from their profits in helping co-sponsor the Texas Energy Expo.
“The college appreciates your precedent-setting gift to the Ernst & Young Leadership Suites,” said Dean Gerry Sanders. “I encourage you to get in the habit of giving back to causes that you support personally and professionally.”
The Business Student Council is a student organization that seeks to provide leadership and professional development opportunities for business students and strengthen synergies between registered business student organizations.
The Ernst & Young Leadership Suites were established in 2012 to provide first-class interview and professional development space for business students and employers. The 1,200-square-foot suites are located on the ground floor of the Business Building and feature six multipurpose breakout rooms with wireless Internet access and video conferencing capabilities.
