SAN ANTONIO -- Over the last three years, University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) accounting students have conducted 10,000 hours of community service through an Accounting Practicum course. Using a standard $100-per-hour billing rate for accountants, 10,000 hours would amount to $1 million of services to the community.

The program began in 2008 with 15 students and has grown this year to include 45 students. The course provides students with hands-on experience that focuses on service learning and real world practices in accounting.

“The UTSA Accounting Department and their community partners have fashioned a powerful and productive learning partnership,” said Gary Bridges, senior lecturer, UTSA Accounting Department. “It not only benefits the participating students and the small businesses they serve, but provides a unique economic stimulus to the San Antonio economy.”

The UTSA College of Business has partnered with the Institute for Economic Development’s Small Business Development Center and ACCION to match small-business clients with UTSA students.

A survey from clients in spring 2011 found that 100 percent of the businesses agreed the students were professional and would recommend the course to other small businesses, and 82 percent of businesses “totally agreed” that the students provided value to their businesses.

For more information, call UTSA faculty member Gary Bridges at 210-422-2267. For addition information, contact Omar Hernandez at 210-458-7555 or omar.hernandez@utsa.edu.
