Day of Service is UHCL's annual event in which students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members give back to the community through service. Formerly known as Community Outreach Day.

The purpose of UHCL’s Day of Service is to connect our students to opportunities to volunteer in our community and develop a heart for servant leadership.
