UTSA Gallery of Student Service

Students and student organizations are invited to showcase their service events from this year to the UTSA community. Students and student organizations are asked to create a visual representation of their service and the agencies they have worked with. They can focus on one or multiple projects for the display. Displays can feature items such as posters, slideshows, collages or tri-fold display boards. The displays will be at the University Center first floor (near the bookstore) from Tuesday, April 23 through Wednesday, April 24. To register yourself or a student organization, complete a form at RowdyLink on the Volunteer Services page.
UTSA Volunteer Appreciation Day

The Inclusion and Community Engagement Center will host a Volunteer Appreciation Day event from 2 to 4 p.m., Wednesday, April 24 at the University Center Paseo on the Main Campus. The get-together is to thank UTSA students, faculty and staff for their volunteer service. Free ice cream will be provided.

UTSA students, student organizations, faculty and staff make a huge impact on the San Antonio community by giving thousands of hours to community agencies, neighborhood associations, schools, churches and more. Both events are a chance to celebrate volunteer service and think about new ways to give back.
