Our primary objectives for the current school year are as follows:

  • Increase the recognition of AKD at UTSA through active recruitment and AKD sponsored activities.
  • Establish a base yearly schedule, providing guidelines for AKD meetings and events which can be built on by future cohorts.
  • Give back to the San Antonio community by aligning with non-profit organizations to make a difference through community service.
