Welcome from the Director
Thank you for visiting the Department of Community Engagement at UT Dallas. The focus of our department and the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement is to foster collaborations in our region that increase student diversity at the University and increase college access.
Research shows that individuals who obtain a college education can significantly increase their lifetime earning potential and lead healthier lives. We believe every person can obtain a college education. Our department is committed to helping underrepresented populations pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree at UT Dallas by developing collaborations with community partners including school districts, community colleges, nonprofit organizations and local businesses.
We hope you will visit our website often to learn more about events, opportunities and possible collaborations to help students pursue their college degree.
