The University of the Incarnate Word takes a glance at its past in a Foto History. The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word arrived in San Antonio in 1869 responding to a call to help those suffering from a yellow fever epidemic. Three young sisters set up a clinic that would become Santa Rosa Hospital. Next they took up the challenge of an orphanage and then a school which in time evolved into The College and Academy of the Incarnate Word. This mission of Sisters- and their successors’- continues at UIW today, with a promise for the future.
