Community Service

Pre-Health Professions students participate in community service as a way to demonstrate their desire to help and serve others in their community, learn more about individuals whose backgrounds may be different, or familiarize themselves with organizations that serve causes they are passionate or interested in.

Civic & Community-Engaged Leadership

UTSA’s Center for Civic & Community-Engaged Leadership provides opportunities for UTSA students to get involved and give back by listing Service Opportunities in the Give Pulse Platform.

UTSA Engaged is an online portal used by GivePulse that allows UTSA students to record their service hours, find service opportunities, and connect with various non-profit and community organizations.

Other Community Service Opportunities

The Student Center for Community Engagement and Inclusion annually hosts a Volunteer Opportunities Fair to allow students to learn about volunteer and service-learning opportunities in the San Antonio area. Check RowdyLink for posting about this year’s event. 

UTSA Leadership and Volunteer Services Office is also a great campus resource for finding ways to get involved and give back. Their programming includes

  • Alternative Spring Break
  • UTSA Day of Service
  • Sponsorship of the Student Organization Volunteer Organization Involving Community, Education and Service (VOICES)
