The Big Event

The Big Event at UCA is a student-led organization that provides volunteer services annually to complete projects submitted by Conway community members. The Vision of the Big Event General Committee is to involve every UCA student, faculty, and staff member in the Big Event to strengthen the bond between UCA and the Conway community by acts of selfless service.

The Big Event took place on Saturday, March 12th, 2022!

Request a Service Project

The Big Event is a time when University of Central Arkansas students, staff, and faculty members along with the Conway community can unite in a campus-wide effort for one BIG day to impact our community. During COVID-19, we adapted this approach to offer several smaller service days, with outdoor projects only. The Big Event impacts numerous community members in the city of Conway and surrounding areas. We offer services such as clean-up, yard work, painting, and small renovations at no cost to the community members. Job Requests are open to UCA faculty & staff, Conway residents, and Conway nonprofits. All projects are pending COVID restrictions and volunteer availability.

Job requests have closed for 2022. Please feel free to email with any questions you may have.
