(Jan. 18, 2019) -- With the Human Health Planning Advisory Task Force launched last November, Academic Affairs will hold a series of informal conversations — Q&A and Update with the Human Health Planning Advisory Task Force — this month with the academic college faculty at the Main and Downtown campuses.
The Task Force was initiated to explore college structures for leveraging university strengths in human health–related education and research efforts to better serve UTSA students, the San Antonio community, and state workforce needs. In this first phase of their work, the Task Force is examining institutional research on health-related programs and scholarship at UTSA, organizational structures and best practices at peer institutions, the local market for health-related careers and programs, and potential community partners. Next steps in the second phase are for the Task Force to begin translating their findings into the development of differing notional organizational structures for a new health college, which will then be carefully considered after receiving input from the broader campus community, external partners and UTSA leadership.
The conversation events as part of the first phase will be hosted by respective college Task Force faculty. Margo DelliCarpini, task force chair and dean of the College of Education and Human Development, and Kimberly Andrews Espy, provost and vice president for academic affairs, will kick off the dialogue with a brief update on the current status of the Task Force’s work. All UTSA faculty are welcome and are encouraged to attend the session hosted by representatives of their respective colleges; all faculty located at the Downtown Campus are welcome to attend the Jan. 25th session in the Buena Vista Street Building Theater.
