Our major,  year-round, SRSU Instructional Services all-campuses event is our live and virtual “Brown Bag” presentations and workshops. Starting from 2003/2004 to the present day, Tim Parsons has been providing these informational Brown Bags every semester as either live events on the Alpine and Del Rio/Eagle Pass/Uvalde campuses , or (since summer 2020) as virtual events to all campuses. See recent Brown Bag event info/handouts/recording links here.
