CARE Program Volunteer Efforts


Miami International University of Art & Design

The MIU community recently took on an amazing community-minded opportunity to work with Miami’s Homeless Trust organization on a project called, Roofs Rising where 1,100 miniature wooden houses were painted to raise awareness of homelessness in Miami. The 1,100 houses represent the actual number of beds needed to house Miami’s street homeless. The final, painted houses were used in an art installation in the form of one large house. Students from our visual arts program along with some staff took on painting 200 houses of the 1,100 that were completed.

The Art Institute of Dallas - A branch of Miami International University of Art & Design

Tammy Wascovich, an instructor at The Art Institute of Dallas, a branch of Miami International University of Art & Design, was this year’s Decoration Committee Coordinator for the 2018 Kidney Cancer Coalition’s Rock the Cure event. Wascovich enlisted the help of Ai Dallas Audio Production instructor Doug Holmes and Barb Pennington, Assistant to the President, to each paint a guitar made from plywood. The decorated guitars were used as centerpieces on the tables and subsequently sold during the banquet’s auction to support fundraising efforts. All proceeds from the event and auction were used to fund the research of the UT Southwestern Kidney Cancer Program.


The Art Institute of Houston

The Art Institute of Houston welcomed to campus Brighter Bites, a local nonprofit that delivers fresh fruits and vegetables to families, while also teaching them how to eat healthier and more nutritious meals. 

Culinary Instructor Chef Elaine Small provided a 2-hour knife skills class to 20 Brighter Bites employees, teaching them knife skills for cuts that included julienne, oblique, batonnet, allumette, paysanne and chiffonade.

The goal was to help them to create efficiency and consistency in their day-to-day processes, while allowing them to add a variety of textures and enhanced visual appeal to their food.
