As it is throughout the university, a priority at the North Miami Campus is developing students who have the skills and training to be ethical leaders in industry and their communities. Service-learning is encouraged at all levels — by students, faculty and administration, with students encouraged to participate literally from their first day on campus.
During the 2009-10 academic year, students at the North Miami Campus performed more than 15,500 hours of community service. Volunteer opportunities range from our annual Join! Work! Unite! event, which occurs during Welcome Week, to helping at food banks and homeless shelters; building houses with Habitat for Humanity; assisting abandoned animals at the Humane Society; painting, landscaping and clean-up projects in parks and recreational facilities; and working with children with developmental disabilities.
In addition, a variety of student organizations on campus provide community service during the academic year on a voluntary basis. Some of our community collaborations include:
