“As Roadrunners, it’s important that we give back to our city,” said President Eighmy. “Putting our time and talents toward the betterment of San Antonio is central to being civically engaged as students, faculty, staff and alumni of this great urban serving university.”
UTSA's Day of Service begins at the Downtown Campus with remarks from President Eighmy, First Lady Peggy Eighmy and San Antonio District 5 City Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales. Following a breakfast, volunteers will travel to one of many participating service agencies to participate in community service projects throughout San Antonio.
Participants should dress comfortably and come ready to work. Those who register online will receive a Day of Service t-shirt, which can be picked up at the Main or Downtown Campus before the event. Once registration closes at 5 p.m. on March 20 and prior to the Day of Service on March 24, volunteers will be assigned a service project.
Participating service agencies and projects include:
