TUVAC's Mission


TUVAC is a University Sponsored Organization dedicated to helping Trinity students connect to community partners and community service programs through volunteer work. We aim to enhance Trinity students' social responsibility by promoting values of equity, diversity, and inclusion through community service. One of our main goals is to bridge the gap between the Trinity community and the greater San Antonio community so that Trinity students can become better informed citizens of their surrounding community and the world.
