Committee Directors: Iris Jing & Mohammad Khan
Overview: The Service Committee is dedicated to promoting student involvement and outreach initiatives in order to improve our campus and the local Austin community. Members of the committee serve the community by planning multiple events, such as Halloween Canned Food Drive, a campus-wide food drive benefitting the Austin Food Bank, and E-Cycling, an electronic waste recycling drive open to the greater Austin area. Through outreach activities such as our High School Design Competition and tutoring at a local middle school, we help educate and excite youth about STEM. The Service Committee helps Cockrell’s students develop their leadership skills, and most importantly, harness their potential to positively influence the community, empowering them to bring their own service ideas to fruition.
