  • Civic Engagement – Ever think you and your organization should be doing more in the community?  Attend this session to learn about the great resources and opportunities available to you!
  • Diversity and Inclusion – Do your meetings and events make everyone on campus feel welcome and included?  Attend to learn strategies to include and embrace the diverse student population on our campus.
