Eight local agencies have entered into powerful agreements with Texas A&M International University’s Partnership TAMIU: An Alliance for Good.

Organized by TAMIU’s Office of Student Conduct and Community Engagement, these agreements establish service opportunities aiding the agencies and enhancing TAMIU student learning and development.

The agreements were signed by agencies and their representatives in a ceremony held recently at the TAMIU Student Center.

Mayra Hernández, director, TAMIU Office of Student Conduct and Community Engagement, said the agreements make it possible for students to work with Partnership agencies and help direct positive social change.

“It helps prepare students to be effective leaders, responsible constituents and to serve their community. Students are able to connect their academic goals to their professional ones through practical skills gained during service opportunities at the partner agencies,” she said.

The agencies that have joined Partnership TAMIU are:

Literacy Volunteers of Laredo, Ruthe B. Cowl Rehabilitation Center, Habitat for Humanity, The Laredo Rotary Club, Children’s Advocacy Center of Laredo-Webb County, Special Olympics Texas Area 21, Bethany House of Laredo and Volunteers Serving the Need. Repeating Partners are the Ruthe B. Cowl Rehabilitation Center, Children’s Advocacy Center and Volunteers Serving the Need.

The Alliance was first launched in  2013.
