In multiple ways, RLSH engages with the wider Dallas / Fort Worth community. Namely, we work to develop and sustain partnerships with city nonprofits, agencies, and organizations to provide students with volunteer and community service. One of the key ways is via Engage Dallas.
Engage Dallas is a place-based community engagement initiative via SMU’s Residential Commons to address community needs focusing on south and west Dallas. The initiative is a long-term, university-wide commitment led by students to partner with local residents, organizations, and other leaders to positively impact the community. There is equal emphasis on campus and community impact stemming from the initiative. Think big and do good today.
