Service-Learning connects students to community...and beyond.  

Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) students and faculty will showcase service-learning projects conducted with local non-profit and government organizations at the annual Service-Learning Expo Tuesday, April 25 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Student Center (SC) Ballroom.

Admission is free and open to the public.       

Some 425 students will showcase 103 projects and represent 21 TAMIU service-learning courses. Among project community partners are the Boys & Girls Club of Laredo, PILLAR, and Bethany House.

Upper division students will present posters in the SC ballroom.  UNIV 1102 students will present from 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. in the SC Rotunda.  Student project presentations will be held from 9 - 11 a.m. , with an Award Ceremony following at 12 noon.

            Service-learning is an educational experience in which students participate in a TAMIU credit-bearing course paired with an organized community service component. Key to service-learning are guided and structured reflections that support learning by enhancing course content comprehension, integrating academic and service concepts, and developing civic/social justice responsibility.
