Volunteer Opportunities

    • Energy Conservation: At UT we take energy conservation very seriously. In order to keep our facilities operating at our highest standard, we need help with various tasks around campus. For example: helping with a light audit, inventorying equipment, etc.
    • volunteer buttonRockets Recycle- Green Tailgating: Promote recycling at home Rocket football games in the Glass Bowl Stadium & Tailgating Lots. Any student, faculty, or staff member that wants to volunteer can sign up by yourself, with a friend, or with a student organization. Significant amounts of recyclables are generated inside and outside of the stadium. Rocket Recycling wants to provide opportunities to capture and recycle these waste streams!

    • Recycling: To strengthen UT's recycling program, we rely on volunteers. Depending on the time of year, different volunteer opportunities are available. Starting in January with RecycleMania, volunteers can help with basketball recycling events, electronic waste events, and others.

    • Outdoor Classroom Garden: The UT Outdoor Classroom Garden relies on volunteers. Volunteers help with planning garden bed design, planting seeds and tending to seedlings, transplanting starts to the garden, weeding and tending garden beds, harvesting flowers and food, and in preparing the garden beds for winter plantings including cover crops and garlic. 

    • Miscellaneous Projects: Depending on the day, SEED always has other miscellaneous projects we could use volunteers to help complete them.
