United to Serve
United to Serve is a system-wide initiative of The University of Texas to unite all of the campuses in service. Every spring since 2004, students, administrators, faculty, and staff across the 15 system institutions have volunteered their time and talents for service projects from health fairs to senior service programs to neighborhood clean-ups coordinated for United to Serve week.
This year, a week highlighting service will be held March 23–29, during which the new Longhorn Center for Civic Engagement (LCCE) will host United to Serve: Engaging a Campus, Serving a Community.
Events for this week will include a mini-conference focused on service-learning and community-based research, the Campus Environmental Center’s Trash to Treasure sale, and daily events with the Eastside Community Center hosted by the Graduate Student Assembly. The week will culminate with The Project follow-up workday, where students will return to the Holly/East Caesar Chavez community as we continue our two year relationship with this community.
