Sam Houston State University



Welcome to GivePulse! For more than 140 years, SHSU has been preparing students for meaningful lives of achievement with its motto of “The measure of a Life is its Service.” This platform allows community agencies and organizations to post service projects they are conducting to help students, faculty, and staff live out the university’s motto. Posted service events will include a project overview (date, time, location, and description), the number of volunteer positions, and when registration closes.


If you are a community agency requesting support for your event or page management, please contact the Department of Student Involvement: Leadership & Service at or 936-294-3000.

From here, users can view upcoming opportunities on the main ‘Sam Houston State University’ page of the platform, or can select ‘Explore’ from the top of the screen to narrow down a search based on interests, location, or by keyword.
