Student Teaching and Research Initiative through Volunteer Employment (STRIVE) is an innovative new program developed collaboratively by faculty and students to offer students work experience opportunities in the Dept. of Horticulture while assisting with horticultural needs. The program promotes volunteerism and education while strengthening participating faculty, staff, and students in areas of research, teaching, or public service. STRIVE requires a voluntary commitment of 3 h/week in an area agreed on by participants and their supervisors. Participants are formally acknowledged by the department for their contributions after completing the semester-long program. Students participating thus far have assisted in teaching laboratories, program development, and greenhouse management.
