United in Service.

The Longhorn Service Council is a committed, concerned group of student organizations representing the interests of the 300+ student organizations at UT who list service in their mission.  Once a month, the Council comes together to share resources, plan joint events, and support each others’ projects.

We believe that, united as Longhorns, we have the power to change the world.
