using design to impact San Antonio
The College of Architecture gives students the skills necessary to independently impact the community through service-based initiatives. With knowledge gained through coursework, Ben Rosas and his classmates started an organization called Volunteer Initiative to turn an underused outdoor area at Methodist Mission Home into a pavilion that is accessible to all.
“I am proud to be working with a volunteer group using specialized knowledge to make a difference for such a fine organization and the people it serves.”

“Working with the staff, donors, volunteers and students at Methodist Mission Home has been an amazing experience,” says Ben. “I am proud to be working with a volunteer group using specialized knowledge to make a difference for such a fine organization and the people it serves.”
Ben received his bachelor's degree in 2011 and is attending graduate school at UTSA. He says his classes gave him the skills and confidence needed to take on such a demanding project to touch lives in San Antonio.
Investment from the community provides resources for such service-learning programs, making it possible for students to gain experience while providing the community revitalized facilities to enjoy.
Give now to support students like Ben who are changing San Antonio.
