Civic Engagement

The Civic Engagement program at UTRGV focuses on two main program functions with the university community. 

It Takes One is a movement that aims to educate and inform students, faculty and staff about topics that they can become involved with and where one person can make a difference. Student Activities hosts a variety of events during the month of September where students can actively participate to become engaged citizens on campus. 

Vaqueros Vote is a nonpartisan coalition of UTRGV faculty, staff, students and nonpartisan community organizations dedicated to increasing political and civic participation among the UTRGV community and increase public awareness about the value of participation in democracy through the electoral process.


The Vaquero Vote Initiative aims to Register, Educate and Get Out the Vote!
