Volunteer Request

The Office of Student Volunteerism (OSV) exists to connect students with meaningful service opportunities year-round.

We look for organizations that will assist us in educating, empowering, and inspiring UT Dallas students to make a positive impact locally and across the nation.

Post a Volunteer Opportunity

If you have a need for volunteers either in an ongoing or one-time capacity, you may post these opportunities at UT Dallas CometCareers, where UT Dallas students can access and search for volunteer events and programs that fit their interests. You must be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization or a governmental agency to post volunteer opportunities on CometCareers.

To request a CometCareers account, email volunteer@utdallas.edu.

Viva Volunteer

student volunteers

Viva Volunteer is UT Dallas' annual day of service for Make A Difference Day. Every October, the University sends approximately 500 students, faculty, staff and alumni into the community to volunteer. We are always looking for one-day, group service projects within 25 miles from our campus for this event.

Alternative Spring Break

OSV is always looking to expand its Alternative Spring Break (ASB) offerings. ASB is a week-long immersion experience where UT Dallas students dedicate their spring break to make a difference in various communities. We are looking for new sites and nonprofit agencies to serve with in March.

Please contact the OSV if you are interested in partnering with us.

Non-UT Dallas Students

At this time, only students currently enrolled at the university are eligible to register and volunteer at OSV events. UT Dallas alumni are encouraged to consider volunteer opportunities through the Alumni Relations office.

If you are not a UT Dallas student but are interested in devoting time to your community, please see the Volunteer Center of North Texas database of area service opportunities. For additional volunteering information and national service opportunities, please visit the HandsOn Network website.

“Volunteering provides the opportunity to reflect on the experiences of others, while putting your own into perspective. By giving back to the community, you open avenues towards knowledge about various social issues and how to address them. The impact on the people you help makes it all worthwhile.”

— Nabila Alam, former OSV Leader
