10th Anniversary of the Day of Service At Biscayne Bay Campus
This year marked the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The Center for Leadership & Service and SEAS joined together as part of a collaborative University-Wide effort to honor those we lost that tragic day and those who rose to service and risked their lives by doing so. The Center for Leadership & Service participated in the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance Week by planning FIU’s 9/11 Day of Service.
FIU’s 9/11 Day of Service was held on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at the Biscayne Bay Campus. Student volunteers showed in record breaking numbers with a total of 395 students in attendance. As part of the Remembrance program, students heard from a group of FIU Alternative Breaks alumni who volunteered with the Salvation Army back in March of 2002 at Ground Zero.
During the service project, participants assisted with a variety of projects which included: a beach cleanup, invasive plant removal, and collection of mangrove seeds. After completing the project, assigned volunteers enjoyed lunch and engaged in a reflection exercise
