Viva Volunteer is UT Dallas' annual service event. Hundreds of students, staff and faculty unite in service in order to serve others on Make a Difference Day. In one morning, Comets travel to local nonprofits and serve in the spirit of making a difference in their community.

Make a Difference Day is the largest day of community service each year, where millions of individuals across the world take the opportunity to serve and give back to their communities.

Viva Volunteer 2018 will take place on Saturday, October 27.
