The Project 2024

The Project is UT Austin’s largest day of student service. This university-wide event helps thousands of students, faculty, and staff each year connect with a different Austin neighborhood. It is organized and run by the Community Engagement Collective (CEC) and annually marks the culmination of a year-long partnership between the CEC and the selected neighborhood’s community leaders.

Join us on March 2nd, 2024 as we partner with the Dove Springs neighborhood to complete beautification projects!
