In collaboration with University Members, HERO is focused on making a difference in three key impact areas:
HERO seeks to conserve, protect and improve Texas’ natural resources, including open lands, water, and plant and animal life.
HERO seeks to improve the application and expression of creativity within the diverse Texas cultures and vocations of Texans.
HERO seeks to improve physical and emotional well-being and health by promoting intergenerational human therapies and decency.
Under the umbrella of these three impact areas are eight fields of focus.
HERO identifies Texas University Members who seek funding in support of students, faculty and academic programming that advance HERO's eight key fields of interest.
