Tenth Anniversary

Center Accomplishments

During the past 10 years, the McGovern Center has provided faculty and students of UTHealth with education, enrichment, and development. There are many accomplishments to be proud of, as echoed by Director, Thomas Cole, PhD, that highlight the determination and effort put into bringing meaningful opportunities to the UTHealth community. These accomplishments further help the Center pave the way for the next 10 years. As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we invite you to join us for special events and lectures throughout the year.
