The MBA group Students Helping Our Community worked Texas A&M’s Big Event this spring in two teams as part of the group’s efforts to increase community involvement and give back through service projects. They’re pictured here in March at one site.
As part of the Business Student Council’s first-ever Project Mays, MBAs planted trees to offset the environmental effects of community expansion. That was just one part of an expansive undergraduate-driven community service effort involving 700 man hours cleaning creekbeds, installing signs and building a disc golf course.
MBAs also volunteered with inmates soon to be released on parole in Bryan’s Hamilton Unit for the four-month Prison Entrepreneurship Program. MBAs reviewed and guided the development of business plans penned by the inmates, culminating in presentations of full business proposals before MBA and industry judges.
