What is SERTOMA?
SERvice TO MAnkind
“SERTOMA exists for the high and noble purpose of service to mankind by communication of thoughts, ideas, and concepts to accelerate human progress in health, education, freedom, and democracy.”
Texas State University SERTOMA
SERTOMA – SERvice TO Mankind – is a community service organization that puts its focus on helping the healthcare community. Along with community service projects, we also raise funds to donate to local organizations and provide services to individuals in need. Our organization is sponsored by the Local San Marcos SERTOMA and chartered by SERTOMA International.
The Local SERTOMA organization provides support and guidance by maintaining close contact with our collegiate organization. They invite us to participate in events such as their Pancake Breakfast in March.
SERTOMA International is the “parent organization,” which provides local and collegiate organizations with bylaws. SERTOMA International's primary service project is assisting the more than 50 million people with speech, hearing and language disorders. It also sponsors community projects to promote freedom and democracy, and to assist a variety of local community needs.
