In a state as big and diverse as Texas, public health concerns can take on different forms from one area to another. With six regional campuses across the state, the School of Public Health stands prepared to meet these challenges on a local level.

Our state-wide presence spans from the Rio Grande Valley to the Gulf Coast to the Hill Country. Campuses in Houston, Austin, Brownsville, Dallas, El Paso, and San Antonio bring a unique focus on issues affecting their communities.

Faculty at each campus apply their expertise in a wide range of fields—from cancer genetics to nutrition and exercise—to solve pressing problems of that particular area, while educating the students who join in this important work as they prepare to serve individuals, families, and entire population groups in their future careers.

They perform this vital mission with the collaborative support of each regional campus as well as the university’s six schools, which provide a deep well of institutional knowledge and infrastructure to help them accomplish their goals.

Each community across Texas knows the urgency of solving the health challenges that affect its people, and we are committed to working with them to find the solutions that lead to healthier lives and neighborhoods.  

As students at our regional campuses learn the skills to tackle the most pressing public health challenges and our researchers work to improve lives in our communities, your support of Many Faces. One Mission. will help us continue to stand as a resource for every Texan now and in the future.
