The purpose of The Big Event at UT Arlington is to plan and implement a day of community service and outreach involving UT Arlington students, faculty, staff, and community members in an effort to engage, educate, and mobilize volunteers throughout the community. The Big Event impacts the community by bringing the campus together with the surrounding community in an effort to show gratitude to those who help others. Numerous community-based and non-profit organizations and agencies benefit from volunteer efforts, as well as local residents, including those that provide services to children, senior citizens and low income families, or those that promote the quality of life, such as the Science Center at River Legacy Park, Arlington ISD, and other various project. Volunteers are proud to help others improve the lives of the people who rely on these important services and facilities.
The Big Event at UTA is the university's largest day of community service! EVery spring we go into our surrounding communities and look for ways to build relationships between our students and community members through volunteerism. Enthusiastic volunteers will come out on April 8, 2017, to participate at a chosen project site. Project Sites may be in an area that emphasizes environmental sustainability, youth development or health and homelessness awareness, and many more. There are many different levels of participation for The Big Event. You can be a Project Site Leader, A Project Site, or a Volunteer. Either way you are making a BIG difference to our BIG Community!
