Whether it is nursing students doing community health work in Belize or in rural medical clinics in Tennessee, or engineering students designing latrines for villages abroad or medical equipment for children with special needs, or agriculture students studying food insecurity and building community gardens, Tech students become lifelong learners who use their curiosity, skills and passion for good.
