Student Giving


"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi 

What is Be the Change?

Be the Change is a tradition of student giving at UHCL. Over the past five years, students have raised more than $5,000 through simple gifts of change. 

How can I get involved?

  • Pick up a pig from a Be the Change event or at the University Advancement office, B1604
  • Donate change 
  • When your bank is full, drop off your change at the University Advancement office
  • Volunteer to help out at a Be the Change event on campus 
  • Brainstorm with other students about actively improving UHCL

How do I care for my pig?

  • Decorate your piggy bank and make it yours! 
  • Fill it with your loose change, dollar bills or even checks 
  • Watch your email for the latest information, events and contests (bring your pig, too!) 

What does caring for a Be the Change pig do for me?

Besides being a cool keepsake, Be the Change makes it easy and painless to give a little something back - in a feel good, philanthropic way to your soon-to-be alma mater. It kicks off your experience as a UHCL alumni, a bond that you will have forever. Saving can be a challenge, but Be the Change is an opportunity to be an active participant helping UHCL and the Hawk community!
