Resources for Community Partners

Great communities don’t just happen, they happen because of investment from individuals and organizations. We are lucky to have so many great nonprofit and community agencies investing in Knoxville and hope that we can help support the work that you do.

Partnership Opportunities

Throughout the year, the Jones Center hosts a variety of leadership development and community engagement programs for the campus community. Learn more about how your organization can partner with us to make these programs happen.


ServeUTK (powered by GivePulse) is a civic engagement platform for matching, tracking and assessing community engagement of our students, faculty and staff. This new platform has replaced our Sign Up to Serve Calendar and Track Your Hours portal. Learn more about how to create an account, post opportunities, and manage your account.

Other Resources for Community Organizations at UTK

The Center for Career Development and Academic Exploration oversees Handshake, a job and internship database, which can be used to post internships, part-time, and full-time jobs. If you’re looking to advertise any vacancies at your organization, please visit the Handshake website.

The Office of Community Engagement and Outreach provides resources and support to more deeply integrate community engagement with its land-grant mission of teaching, research, and public engagement. We facilitate hundreds of connections between faculty, staff, students, and community partners. We highly recommend reaching out to their staff to explore partnerships that might not fall within the scope of the Jones Center.
