Focused on Impact
Transforming health and health care
With the Dell Medical School and colleges, schools and departments across campus, UT is reimagining not only medical and health education, but health care itself.
Changing the Game
Creating a vibrant Texas
The Texas Constitution of 1876 called for the creation of a “university of the first class,” which resulted in the founding of UT. Since our earliest days, it has been UT’s mission to serve Texas by driving economic, scientific and artistic progress for the benefit of society.
