Learn More About the Division

The Division of Campus and Community Engagement is a national model for integrating access and belonging into the core mission of the University. It works with a broad range of students, faculty, staff and community constituents to help The University of Texas at Austin connect its intellectual resources to communities across Texas and offer education to those who may face the greatest challenges in accessing it. The Division focuses on four core pillars: student success, campus engagement, community engagement, and access and belonging advancement.

Giving Spotlight: The Project

UT Austin Students volunteer with The Project working by planting in a garden

As hundreds of students gear up for The Project—UT’s largest day of service—we’re highlighting their HornRaiser campaign, which runs until Feb. 23. Any gift, large or small, will support their many community-service projects—from planting community gardens to painting buildings and structures to sprucing up parks and green spaces.
