The College for Health, Community and Policy (HCaP) has created an opportunity unlike anything in the nation. HCaP was launched following a two-year planning process with eight departments and one program. The departments from the former College of Public Policy – Criminology and Criminal Justice, Demography, Public Administration and Social Work – joined the Departments of Psychology and Sociology (historically located in the College of Liberal and Fine Arts and the Departments of Kinesiology and Public Health (from the College of Education and Human Development), along with the Nutrition and Registered Dietetics program. In September 2020, we came together, and now we are officially the largest College on campus, with 20% of the student body pursuing a degree within one of these programs.
By investing in our students and our research and focusing on the four Cs of HCaP (critical thinking, community engagement, career preparedness, and a call to action), we will train superb students who are committed to working with and in their community. With roots in public policy, liberal arts and education, HCaP brings together a unique combination of departments, training students across disciplines to become leaders in the health workforce community.
Giving to the Dean’s Excellence Fund allows the College to enhance students’ educational experience in a multi-transdisciplinary environment that emphasizes teamwork, collaboration, and a passion for the health and policy in the community. The Fund will have a direct and immediate impact on developing social, personal, and leadership skills and career experience for UTSA students. These gifts ensure support for the critical areas of student scholarships, recruitment and retention of key faculty, research, classroom technology and much more. Your support demonstrates the partnership between the community and the university.
