How to Join
Although everyone is welcome to attend our club meetings and events, we offer the opportunity for students to achieve "active membership" within our club. This is how students can officially join our club! Active membership status is an outstanding achievement awarded to students who display exemplary participation in our mission to promote multicultural awareness, prepare future leaders for work in diverse communities, foster achievement for those entering the helping professions, and advocate for social change.
Active membership requirements:
- Pay a one-time $35 membership fee by cash (Receive a club shirt after paying the fee! Please give us at least a 2-day notice if you plan on paying and bring us the exact cash amount)
- Earn 15 membership points (See Points)
Active membership benefits:
- Receive a cord for graduation
- Receive a certificate of recognition for active membership
- Reflect on your membership in the club for graduate school/job applications and on your resume/CV
