The Office of Student Volunteerism (OSV) at the University of Texas at Dallas empowers students to become lifelong, actively engaged global leaders who seek to understand, advocate, and respond to community issues and needs. We build high-impact volunteer service experiences that offer students the opportunity to learn about critical social issues and contribute their time and talents in a meaningful way. The OSV Director will develop and execute strategies to achieve the departments’ mission, vision, and goals, and build on an already vibrant array of community engagement programs and events. They oversee departmental operations, including: strategic planning, program assessment, budget forecasting, fiscal monitoring, risk management, and ensuring compliance with university rules and policies. The OSV Director is responsible for hiring, training, and supervising three professional staff, and 10+ student leaders. They monitor job performance through weekly meetings and annual evaluations.
