Bold Futures Submissions
Today college looks different than ever before. You are experiencing it in a completely distinctive way. Your first year at UTSA will be different than anyone else's.
Over the course of the academic year, through your coursework and student organizations, you will have opportunities to create projects that document your experiences and reflections of this extraordinary time. You can choose to submit these to the Runner Research Press (RRP), an online repository that collects, preserves, and shares the scholarly work of UTSA. Submitting your work makes it available as an important resource for future students and researchers. This choice to include your work will be up to you and will not impact your grade or standing at UTSA.
After submission, your work will be freely available for others to share, study and enjoy on the Runner Research Press web page.
Questions? You can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Using Audio Recordings

- Search SoundCloud for content that is openly licensed and/or available for download. The SoundCloud search allows you to filter and limit the results to specifically licensed content. Clicking through to the artist or track page to view the license details.

- Use MusOpen to find recordings available to the public for free, without copyright restrictions
