Our Programs

Every year, UTRGV reaches over 12,000 K-12 students across the Rio Grande Valley through our community-based programs. One of our most successful and largest events of the year, HESTEC, has become a nationally-recognized model and has earned recognition from the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. We consistently strive to engage students in the RGV and expose them to various educational and career pathways for their future.
