TCU and the DFW Metroplex

  • TCU and the University of North Texas Health Science Center are collaborating on a new medical school that will put Fort Worth on the cutting edge of medical education with its team model of care, which places the patient at the center and enhances communication among caregivers. The new school is an applicant for accreditation and is expected to take its first class of students in 2019.
  • Through the Community Scholars Program, TCU helps make college a reality for top students who attend 11 underrepresented public high schools from across the Metroplex.
  • TCU and its hometown have enjoyed more than a century of partnership since the University moved to Fort Worth from its Waco campus in 1910.
  • The Andrews Institute of Mathematics & Science Education provides workshops and programming for hundreds of K-12 teachers and students in the DFW area and around the state.
  • In the summer, the University opens the campus to tens of thousands of participants in TCU-sponsored camps, conferences and other community events.
  • The Berry Street Initiative has enhanced the urban environment in the neighborhood adjacent to TCU. The University has been a key partner in this initiative.
  • With events like the Trinity Shakespeare Festival, the PianoTexas International Academy & Festival and the Festival of American Song, TCU is an anchor in the cultural life of North Texas.
  • TCU is developing innovative solutions to critical health care needs with initiatives such as the nurse anesthesia program, a doctorate in nursing practice, and TCU’s Center for Evidence Based Practice and Research: A Collaborating Center of the Joanna Briggs Institute, headquartered in Australia.
