Students Volunteer in Record Numbers

Published: Jan 12, 2000
UT student volunteerism is on the rise.  The 22,711 student volunteer hours in the community in the 1999-2000 academic year set a new University record.  Officially, 577 students accounted for 11,870 "donation points" to some 70 community organizations during the year.  The figures include only the 22 student organizations within the student activities office and none of the donation figures from other UT volunteer sources, including course requirements.  Events like last fall’s "Into the Streets" and this month’s "Make a Difference Day" have the University on pace to set another record in 2000-2001.
