Help us prepare for SACS visit and improve UNTHSC!

SOUTHERN ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS sealFaculty, staff and students, give us your ideas to develop our Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).

The Health Science Center is preparing for its reaffirmation of regional accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). As part of this reaffirmation, we must demonstrate that we are continually developing new ways of improving the quality of learning of our students. Your input will help shape a new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) and improve the future learning environment for our students.

Bid farewell to the OMCT
As the Health Science Center’s expansion west begins, we’ll take time to honor the Osteopathic Medical Center of Texas, which trained many of our TCOM students and served our community. Join the campus community for a “retirement party” at the OMCT.  President Ransom and officials will take a ceremonial swing at the OMCT to begin the demolition. Cake and beverages will be served.
