The Texas Interdisciplinary Plan Community Outreach (TIPCO) is a registered student organization open to all TIP Scholars and Mentors past and present. The purpose of TIPCO is to create and organize meaningful opportunities for TIP Scholars and Mentors to make a positive impact in a variety of communities both local and global. Active every fall and spring, TIPCO has contributed to making the world a better place from right here on campus to the other side of the planet.

What does TIPCO do?

Members of TIPCO devote their time and energy to volunteering with various campus and community organizations. TIPCO has two primary goals: to make a significant difference in our city over time and to foster an ethos of service among TIP Scholars. Since the creation of TIPCO in the fall of 2009, its members have contributed many hours of service in the Austin area, including creating care packages for the homeless, participating in creek cleanups, and volunteering with a variety of local non-profit organizations. These organizations include Aids Services of Austin, Austin Pets Alive, Race for the Cure, Keep Austin Beautiful, and CASA.

Members of TIPCO aim to volunteer at least twice a month during the fall and spring semesters. Whether you are seeking to build your volunteer resume or simply have a passion to reach out and help others, TIPCO is the organization to join.
