The TAMIU Trailblazers program is a co-curricular leadership initiative that allows students to Go Beyond the classroom. It is free and open to all Dustdevils. No application is required.
Available engagement opportunities include conferences, workshops, organizations, leadership roles, and the list goes on. All 150+ items are offered within five learning dimensions: Career Development, Civic Leadership, Global Perspective, Health & Wellness and Personal Enrichment.
Each learning dimension is divided into three levels: Exploring Stage, Engagement Stage and the Leadership Stage. Successful completion of a learning dimension includes:
Completing three (3) items in the Exploring Stage
Completing two (2) items in the Engagement Stage
Completing one (1) item in the Leadership Stage
You may track your progress using the Trailblazers (CampusLabs Engage) platform. Items may be completed through self-reporting, event attendance records, and membership within organizations.
Upon completing a learning dimension, you will earn a patch for graduation. Students who complete all five learning dimensions will earn an additional patch and pin.
