Community Service at UT Tyler


Connecting You to Service Opportunities


The University of Texas at Tyler Office of Leadership and Service connects UT Tyler students to service opportunities on campus, in the Tyler/East Texas community and beyond.

Through volunteerism, you'll help create solutions to critical challenges in the community while also building your leadership skills, gaining a broader awareness of social issues and enhancing your overall collegiate experience.

The Office of Leadership and Service provides a structure and resources to prepare students to become socially responsible citizens in a culturally diverse and complex society. We take pride in the work that we do to promote service and leadership to our students through our campus and local community.
