What is Service?

Service and civic participation go beyond donating canned goods and volunteering at a soup kitchen.  UTEP students, faculty and staff conduct exit polls, serve on nonprofit boards and donate hours of volunteer time to local charities.

Other ways to give back to your community:

  • work on a political campaign
  • serve on a community advisory board
  • organize a community clean-up
  • volunteer at a local nonprofit
  • attend a charity fundraising event
  • take a class that requires service learning
  • tutor local children
  • become a court watcher and help crime victims
