Viva Volunteer is UT Dallas' annual service event. Hundreds of students, staff and faculty unite in service in order to serve others on Make A Difference Day. In one morning, Comets travel to local nonprofits and serve in the spirit of making a difference in their community. Transportation to and from project sites will be provided to all registered volunteers, as well as breakfast, lunch, and t-shirts.

8 a.m.-1 p.m.

Student group registration opens on August 22 and will close when capacity is met. At the time of registration each group will be asked to include contact information for their identified student Site Leader and Responsible University Official (RUO). These individuals will attend leadership meetings in preparation for the event and will serve as the main points of contact for their group on the day of the event.
