Faculty at UT Health San Antonio have diverse academic appointments, reflecting the broad scope of the university’s mission areas: education, research, health care, and community engagement. Our faculty have departmental or school homes, based on their academic and professional expertise; they also may share appointments across research institutes and centers, administrative areas, or community outreach units.
Faculty generally hold their academic appointments in our four schools: Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine, School of Dentistry, School of Nursing, and School of Health Professions. Faculty from these four schools are also the core for our academic programs in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
Within the area of academic effectiveness, our community may learn more about academic program development as well as program accreditation and program review and assessment. Demographic data about our community are available through the Office of Institutional Research.
Faculty also serve critical roles advising university leaders. In the area of faculty governance, UT Health San Antonio’s Faculty Senate is the primary representative voice of the faculty on issues that may affect the rights, privileges, responsibilities and welfare of the university’s faculty. It provides a means for campus-wide communication among the faculty of all schools as well as between the faculty and administration. http://uthscsa.edu/facultygovt/
The presence of faculty on university-wide standing committees ensures that their expertise across a wide range of institutional responsibilities is garnered as the work of the university is conducted. University-wide standing committees provide advice to institutional units; they can as well perform critical regulatory roles based on federal, state or institutional requirements. http://uthscsa.edu/comm/index.asp
