faculty and administration. Members are routinely involved in activities

our program and professions through university and community
service; arranging for professionals to come to our campus to meet with
students and share their professional expertise and experiences;
maintaining a job bank for students and prospective employers; and last
but not least, fostering social interaction among students, and between
