Volunteers are UTHealth’s strongest advocates and influencers and play an important role in the success of the university. Our volunteers work with university leadership to provide external perspective and review, as well as advocacy and philanthropic support for programs.
Development board, advisory council and other volunteer membership appointments are by recommendation and/or invitation and appointed by the President of UTHealth. Terms of service vary by group and meetings convened throughout the year.
We offer several volunteer opportunities through the Office of Development, including:
School and program-based advisory councils and volunteer groups:
• McGovern Medical School Advocacy Group
• Children’s Learning Institute Advisory Council
• Brown Foundation Institute for Molecular Medicine Advisory Council
• School of Biomedical Informatics Advisory Council
• MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Advisory Council
• Cizik School of Nursing Advisory Council
• PARTNERS (Providing Advancement Resources for Nursing Education, Research & Students)
• Government Relations Advisory Council
• Luminaries Young Leader Advocacy Group
