Collaborating with TAMIU as a Signature Partner provides many incentives for your agency!  Launched in Fall 2014, Partnership TAMIU is a nomination-based community engagement agreement designed to enhance existing relationships between TAMIU and external agencies by: helping community partners to meet its agency's mission and goals, promote the exchange of resources between the University and community agency, and exhibit a commitment to social responsibility by address issues of public concern. The selected Signature Partners sign a two-year Memorandum of Agreement with TAMIU for exclusive collaborative efforts.
