Please note: The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio will now be called "UT Health San Antonio."

Community Outreach

The mission of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is to make lives better through excellence in education, research, health care and community engagement. Community engagement is very important to the graduate school and our students routinely participate in community service projects. To read more about our latest work, click here

Science Outreach

One of the ways that we help our community is by participating at local science festivals. Our students routinely serve as judges at The John Jay Science & Engineering Academy Science and Engineering Fair and the Young Women’s Leadership Academy fair. We also help volunteer at science nights through the Voelcker Biosciences Teacher Academy or Initiative for Maximizing Student Development program such as when we went to the Robert L. Vale Middle School Science NightBooker T. Washington Elementary School or Cafe College.

Science outreach is a passion of ours and we are frequent participators of the Boys & Girls Club Fall STEM Day, Girls Inc. Science Festival.

Another way we contribute to the community is by visiting local schools or after-school programs such as the Five Palms Elementary SchoolSunshine Cottage SchoolBoys and Girls Clubhouse.

San Antonio Outreach

In addition to science outreach, we also participate in non-scientific outreach like when we volunteered and sorted boxes at the Food Bank, or when we helped to build homes with Habitat For Humanity, participated in game night at the Battered Women's Shelter. We also partnered with the American Heart Association for an event on campus where survivors were able to meet heart disease/stroke researchers. We have also participated in American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.
