MLK Day of Service

Once per semester,  the campus community is invited to participate together in a day of service to the Dallas community. Stampede of Service takes place during the fall semester, typically around Homecoming festivities. The MLK Day of Service occurs in January in recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday. We work with a wide range of Dallas organizations during days of service, and past projects have included organizing food and clothes pantries, cleaning outdoor recreation areas, painting and restoring shelters, building accessibility ramps for homes, and helping teachers organize their classrooms.
