February 10, 2004 :: College Students to Kick Off a ‘Month of Action’
Oklahoma college students are preparing to raise their voices and their profile in a series of constructive events that are intended to get all students involved in their communities. The events are sponsored by Vocal Oklahomans in Civic Engagement (VOICE), a campaign dedicated to getting more Oklahoma college students engaged in a broad range of their civic responsibilities.
“Raise Your Voice: Month of Action” will be kicked off at 3 p.m., February 12, at the State Capitol, House Chambers. Chancellor Paul G. Risser and Campus Compact Coordinator Jennifer Geren will welcome participants from college campuses and from state government in a forum to discuss upcoming activities.
Activities including voter registration campaigns, volunteer recruitment and food bank service projects are already planned at eleven public and private institutions, with more planned.
