(Dec. 6, 2011) --This is National Employee Learning Week, which is hosted each year by the American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) to note the importance of improving and learning. National surveys show that a major factor in retaining employees is top-quality training, which also promotes business success. Training is instrumental to organizations as they grow and develop, and UTSA is no exception.

National Employee Learning Week is a time to celebrate the process of continuously learning and improving, no matter your age or position in an organization. It's also a time to thank the subject matter experts (SMEs) around the UTSA campuses who significantly contribute to making this learning possible.

Did someone at UTSA help you learn the ins-and-outs of your job? Have you attended classroom training on key subjects? Have you taken an online training class? Did someone at UTSA teach you something that enabled you to grow professionally or personally?

You probably answered "yes" to at least one of these questions. And, for this specialized learning, let's thank the more than 130 SMEs who design and implement hundreds of classroom and online learning programs for UTSA employees every year.

In addition to their regular UTSA jobs, SMEs take time to provide this important training service for the benefit of all UTSA employees. SMEs facilitate these and many other training classes at UTSA:

  • Ally training
  • Banner
  • Budget
  • Cash handling
  • CBC information
