Volunteers have been lighting the way for others across Tennessee and throughout the world for 225 years. Service is essential to the Volunteer experience and makes Rocky Top a special place. Every contribution through service—no matter how small—is an investment in our communities, demonstrating to others the world we seek to create. In addition to service performed through UT’s programs, Volunteers serve in many ways outside the university—in our schools, neighborhoods, churches, and local nonprofit groups.
Through June 2020, we’re asking all members of our Volunteer family to submit your service hours online.
At the conclusion of UT’s 225th anniversary year, we will share a snapshot of the impact our students, faculty and staff, and alumni have on their communities.
Service hour tracking for students is maintained by the Jones Center for Leadership and Service.
