Hello, My name is Eric Silva and I’m a Multidisciplinary Studies major at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) in Brownsville, Texas. My areas of focus include Computer Science, Educational Technology, and Technology Education and Corporate Training. My anticipated graduation date is May 2017.
While at UTRGV I’m actively involved with the Student Government Association (SGA) and The National Society for Leadership and Success (NSLS). I have served as a Senator for the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and currently serve as a Senator-at-Large for our Brownsville Campus and Chair of the Senate. In addition to these student organizations, I also serve as a member on the university’s Strategic Planning Committee and Quality Enhancement Plan. I also work as a Course Developer at the university’s Center for Online Learning and Teaching Technology.
Moreover, I also serve as a member of the Educational Improvement Council (EIC) for South Texas Independent School District (STISD). The purpose of the EIC is to advise the STISD Board of Directors in establishing and reviewing district educational goals, objectives and major District wide classroom instructional programs. In 2011, I also served as a student representative on the district’s Strategic Planning Committee.
Upon completion of my undergraduate program, I hope to further my education in graduate school focusing on Educational Technology.
