Community Partners - Jindal OutREACH


In keeping with the Naveen Jindal School of Management mission to provide innovative education and graduat well-rounded citizens prepared for rewarding, productive lives in a rapidly changing, technology-driven global society, the Jindal School enriched its undergraduate curriculum with the addition of a social engagement requirement in fall 2018. This social engagement requirement enhances students’ education by giving them opportunities to apply classroom knowledge in practical settings. Assisting in community endeavors enhances their understanding of class materials and foster their personal and social skill development while strengthening their bonds to the community.

Our Goals and Learning Objectives

  1. To enhance community-university relationships. Keying off the Jindal School vision of a strong synergistic partnership within the DFW community, students provide service and support to the community. They promote the school’s spirit of public-mindedness and bring new energy and perspectives to community work.
  2. To grow students’ professionalism. Students build leadership and teamwork skills as they make connections with professionals and community members and add unique community experiences to their résumés.
  3. To enrich students’ personal development and interpersonal skills. Students increase their communication, accountability and cultural competencies as they also improve their social responsibility.
  4. To produce well-rounded students who demonstrate a complex understanding of problem solving, critical thinking and the ability to work collectively to address common societal issues.

In the first year of the initiative, just under 1,400 Jindal OutREACH student volunteers served nearly 15,000 hours of community service, for an economic impact of almost $350,000. Many of these hours were served with community partners who, through the help of our tracking software, were able to post opportunities directly to our Jindal OutREACH students.

We would love to have you join our effort to engage Naveen Jindal School of Management undergraduates and the DFW community! If you are interested in the benefits and process of becoming a Jindal OutREACH community partner, please see Prospective Partners.
