Signature Events

Buffalo Bayou Service Project (BBSP)

Each year departments across UHD participate in the annual Buffalo Bayou Service Project. This campus-wide project was created to help Houston-area high school students gain a better understanding of the importance of Buffalo Bayou. High school students are led through a series of activities created by different academic departments and guided by UHD student volunteers. The day culminates in a boat ride and tour of the bayou itself. BBSP typically occurs the Friday closest to Earth Day each year.

If your high school campus is interested in participating in the next BBSP, please contact CCESL at

MLK Day Service Project
Each year UHD participates in the MLK National Day of Service. Activities typically vary each year and involve numerous student organizations, college departments, students, staff and faculty. If you have a great idea to involve UHD in the community for the MLK National Day of Service, please contact CCESL at We'd love to hear from you!

Community Engagement Showcase

Each year CCESL celebrates the work of students, faculty and staff at UHD by holding a showcase to present their work to their colleagues. Typically, this showcase is held in conjunction with the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence's (CTLE) High Impact Practices (HIPs) showcase. The showcase is a great way for students to get practice presenting their work both inside the classroom and in the community.​
