faculty and staff 



The Office of Student Conduct & Community Engagement (SCCE) helps coordinate community and volunteer projects to assist the Laredo area and South Texas region.  The purpose is to promote community engagement as a fundamental part of learning and to cultivate a University commitment to help those in need.

SCCE also encourages TAMIU faculty to promote service in the classroom. Students participate in volunteer efforts to acquire leadership skills, critical-thinking skills and social responsibility that will facilitate and promote their academic and professional success. Below you will find service opportunities, in addition to other co-curricular programs to enhance student learning.




Becoming engaged in volunteer service is a great way to invest in yourself and others in our community.  With benefits such as the opportunity to apply leadership skills, learn problem-solving techniques, increase optimism and self-esteem, and decrease stress, TAMIU in the Community is a great way to kick-off your volunteer career and make it a part of your healthy lifestyle.





TAMIU is engaged in numerous collaborations with the community, locally and globally.
