About the Conference
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.
- To share best practices and scholarship in community service learning with a focus on how to effectively deliver health information during a public health crisis.
- To bring together an interprofessional group of University of Texas (UT) Health Science Center students, faculty, and staff from across the state with community partners to foster service-learning collaborations.
- To highlight existing UT Health Science System community service learning projects and future opportunities.
- To recognize and reward excellence in community service learning within the UT Health Science System.
