Civic Engagement

Through robust partnerships, Civic Engagement invests in the Victoria community on initiatives such as education, hunger, homelessness and voting. The University of Houston-Victoria promotes a lifelong commitment to active citizenship and social responsibilities among all students. Students are able to assist with the economic growth and succession by collaborating on key initiatives like Alternative Spring Break, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness, Project Vote, National Volunteer Week, and Jags Join In: Day of Service.

We encourage all students to REGISTER TO VOTE, if you are not already registered. 

Students are encouraged to contact us with any questions or needs they may have. We are located in the Center for Student Involvement in the University Commons building, Suite 2202. Our hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Contact Molly Duke at (361) 485-4457 for more information.
