LSU Students Promote Community Involvement Through the Office of Strategic Initiatives
BATON ROUGE – This year, LSU students are finding new ways to give back to the Baton Rouge community through the Innovation through Institutional Integration, or I³, Project.
Groups of college students from the LSU Office of Strategic Initiatives, or OSI, and the Gordon Cain Center for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM, Literacy volunteered their time over two semesters to help grade-level students. These initiatives included assisting with science and engineering fair projects and tutoring in math and science in the Baton Rouge area.
Many academic programs at LSU encourage their students to participate in community outreach as a means of personal and professional development.
The National Science Foundation, or NSF, I³ Project provides opportunities for LSU students to help with science fair projects at different locations in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas including Baton Rouge Magnet High School and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, or HHMI, Professors High School Program. This experience included meeting weekly with students who desired to participate in regional, state, and national science fairs, and helping them to develop and strengthen their projects.View Spotlight
