Research

The College for Health, Community and Policy pursues high-quality, scientific research to understand social problems and assists in the development of effective solutions to these issues.

To that end, we developed iHCAP – an umbrella institution to house our four research centers and institutes: the Center for Applied Community and Policy Research, the Institute for Demographic and Socioeconomic Research, the Institute for Health Disparities Research, and the Center for Community Based and Applied Health Research.

Each center and institute serves our community through a unique lens. Together, they move the mission of HCAP forward – to affect change for complex social issues to improve the well-being of our community.

Supporting UTSA’s commitment to becoming a top-tier research university, our faculty are committed to promoting student research and success.
