October 14 , 2019


Members of Facilities Management staff recently completed the UT Health San Antonio Human Resources' Leadership Excellence for Administrative Professionals (LEAP) program. Jennifer Johnson, Manager of Project Management, and Reuben Pinkson, Assistant Director for Design and Engineering, completed the 11-month program which started in August 2018 aimed to enhance the application of leadership knowledge and skills to meet the dynamic needs of higher education, healthcare and research.


In LEAP, program participants are assigned in teams designed to improve their collaboration skills, foster a culture of continuous improvement, and increase leadership commitment. Johnson, along with her other fellow managerial peers in the University, was assigned to the 'Employee Wellness' team. The team was charged with researching wellness resources and activities and how they can be promoted across campuses through collaboration and endorsement. For the 'UT Health Food Pantry' group, Pinkson and his team co-members planned the creation of a food pantry on campus to aid students in need.
