1. Mightier Than Sword: Ida B. Wells:
“The pen is mightier than the sword.” Ida B. Wells wielded her pen for the advancement of racial equality and racial justice. She skillfully waged war through her publications and work as editor of Memphis Free Speech and Headlight. She continued to strategically advance social change while serving as a journalist with Chicago’s Daily Inter Ocean and the Chicago Conservator, one of the oldest African American newspaper publications in the United States. On July 16, 2015, as we celebrated her 153rd birthday, we are reminded of the power of writing as advocacy. Writing is indispensable tool for leaders since it is a tactical tool that can be employed to build and sustain social change. It can be used as a tool to educate diverse audiences, organize social change initiatives, and advocate for social reform.”

With more than 30 student organizations, there is a place for everyone. Many student groups work for social change through public forums, publish articles or sponsor and host well-known speakers. Others may donate their time for legal research for a group in need, solicit pro bono legal help, or raise funds for a specific cause.”    To the members of the Class of 2018: We look forward to meeting you in August!
