Where there's a need, there's a Lion.

Our mission is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding (and we have a downright fantastic time doing just that).

Lions Club at the University of Texas at Austin is quickly growing and accomplishing more than ever thought possible. Below are a few of our goals for the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year.

6,000 Service Hour Goal
$1,000 Disaster Fund Goal

Our club

Lions Club at the University of Texas at Austin is just one chapter of Lions Club International, the world's largest service organization. We strive to provide everything you could want in a collegiate club.

Service: Giving Back
Lions Club has a simple motto: “We Serve.” To that end, we serve the UT community and the city of Austin at large. Service events range from creek clean-ups to assisted care center visits, community garden workdays to helping other local organizations and non-profits. There’s a way to get involved for everyone on the Forty Acres and beyond.
Social: Branching Out
Lions Club is open to everyone and has a diverse membership. We are close-knit family where lasting friendships are forged. The Lions Club at the University of Texas at Austin is part of Lions Club International, the world’s foremost volunteer service organization. Lions Club is the best place to make friends and find mentors on campus.
Leadership: Changing the World
The committee structure of the Lions Club offers many formal positions to allow members to develop and exercise leadership skills. Plus, our service and social events provide opportunities for anyone to contribute their unique skills and talents. Lions Club provides an exciting and rewarding experience for all members.
