Introduction to UTSA Engaged
UTSA Engaged is an online portal supported by GivePulse that allows UTSA students, faculty, staff, and campus organizations to record their service hours, find service opportunities and connect with various non-profit and community organizations. Through UTSA Engaged those associated with UTSA are added to subgroups and utilize the portal to keep track of all service events and record hours. Non-profit affiliates post opportunities and assist us in verifying service hours.
