Community Engagement Platform EngageUTD


UT Dallas is committed to making an impact and contributing to the communities of Dallas. EngageUTD is a platform where students, faculty and community partners can engage and collaborate. UTD is partnered with various organizations that post their volunteering events and programs on EngageUTD and students/faculty can keep track of those events and register and record their hours/impacts.

Questions or feedback? Let us know more about your experiences with EngageUTD and we will be in touch. You may also contact the Office of Student Volunteerism at 972-883-6131 or email [email protected]. Additional resources to navigate the platform can be found at Givepulse Support.


EngageUTD allows students to find and register for volunteer opportunities posted by community organizations. Students can learn more about how to sign up, register for events and add their service hours/impacts.
