The Annual Faculty & Staff Challenge at TAMIU celebrates and encourages employee giving.  Throughout this month-long (friendly) competition, the University challenges every office and department on campus to reach 100% participation by having all members of their team make a gift or sign up for payroll deduction.


The best part is you can give to whatever area you are most passionate about! Popular areas to give to include general scholarships, specific colleges/ schools, programs, athletics, and international experiences.



We invite all participating employees to our annual celebration.  In the spirit of our #VivaTAMIU theme, we will be hosting our celebration on National Taco Day.


The #TacoThursday celebration will be held on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 5 p.m.  Please keep a look out for our email invitation for more information. 



In an effort to even out the playing field, we have divided each office and department into tiers.  You and your team are only competing against those in your tier.
