Walk As One will take place on Wednesday, February 22nd. We are excited to have been asked to have fraternity and sorority members engage in this volunteer work as both a way to interact with our local police officers as well as distribute alcohol safety information to the student body. Help us make this a successful collaboration! Please email and let us know how many chapter members are able to volunteer.

Apply to be on the Subcommittee on Student Conduct or the Subcommittee on Sexual Misconduct!  

Service on these committees is a challenging and satisfying way for students and faculty to enhance their academic experience. In addition to the actual review of discipline cases, training activities help committee members enhance their abilities to organize time, develop critical thinking skills, and to improve communication skills. Some students who have served on the committee have achieved great success in law school and other professional careers. Many students felt that their experience on the committee made a definite positive impact on their abilities to interview articulately and confidently. Many faculty members have said that they have appreciated the opportunity to work with students on the committee and to gain a better understanding of the challenges students in our community face.
