15th Annual Community Service Learning Conference
Unseen and Unheard: Meeting the Needs of Displaced Youth

Community Service Learning (CSL) is a structured learning experience that combines community service with explicit learning objectives, preparation, mentorship and reflection.  UT Health San Antonio students address community-identified needs while learning about the context in which illness develops, connecting their academic coursework to real-life situations, and reflecting on their roles as future healthcare professionals.

The Annual CSL Conference at UT Health San Antonio originated in 2008 as an opportunity to learn from the CSL experiences of students, faculty, staff, and community partners in San Antonio and across Texas.  Each year, the conference focuses on a theme relevant to service-learning and hosts experts and guest lecturers, provides skill-building workshops, and showcases CSL projects through students’ poster presentations.

Presented by the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics in conjunction with an interprofessional planning committee, the conference is free and open to the community.Registration is required by January 31st.

Call for Student Posters

Students from ALL UT Health Science and affiliated institutions are invited to submit poster abstracts describing their CSL projects.  Abstracts must be submitted online by January 10. The event will culminate with a  poster session that highlights students’ service-learning projects, a highly anticipated event every year.
