Engagement with the Community
In Spring 2015, the department forged a relationship with the Tampa Heights Junior Civic Association (THJCA). Faculty and students from various departments came together in February and March to help renovate an old church that will become a new center for older youth in the Tampa Heights community. The mission of the THJCA is to provide services for youth that will promote positive development and marketable skills. The department will continue to support the mission of THJCA through collaborative research projects and volunteering so stay tuned for further developments!
