Title IX Focus Group Sessions with Office for Civil Rights
Hopefully you all have taken the time to carefully read the email sent by Dean of Student Affairs, Gina Casalengo, on Monday informing you of the Title IX Focus Group Sessions with Office for Civil Rights. As leaders across campus, you have a tremendous amount of influence over the health of campus community and also have a unique perspective on how sexual harassment and sexual violence affects our community. We strongly encourage your participation at one of the many sessions listed in Dean Casalengo’s email, which can be found here for your reference. However, I’d like to draw your attention to a specific session designed to gather your unique perspective. Please ensure that all executive board members have been notified of this specific session and encourage their participation at an alternate focus group if they are unable to attend this particular session.

Wednesday, September 24: 2:00 p.m.
Members of Student Government (Undergraduate Student Senate and Graduate Student Assembly) and
Leaders of Student Organizations (presidents or executive members)

All sessions will be held in the Posner Center, which is located between CFA and the Tepper School of Business.

Blood Drive Hosts Urgently Needed
Organization hosts are needed for the fall blood drives that support the Central Blood Bank (CBB) and American Red Cross (ARC). Organizational hosts are responsible for publicizing the blood drive, signing up donors in advance, and assisting on the day of the actual drive. All publicity materials will be provided to hosting organizations. Sign-up to host on the PACE Bridge page. Questions? Email Liz Vaughan.

Unfortunately, to date only one student organization and one Greek chapter has signed up to host any of the 11 bood drives for the 2014-2015 year. Your participation is CRITICAL to the blood drive program’s success. Please consider hosting a fall (and/or spring) blood drive!
We are urgently in need of a host for the Sept 25th blood drive. Please, consider hosting a drive(s)…we need your support and participation to be able to continue to provide life-saving blood and blood products to our local community.

Drive Hours: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

There are also 6 additional drives in the spring that also need hosts.
