Public Affairs Clothing Drive
The Public Affairs Week Committee at Missouri State is hosting a clothing drive for Rainbow Network, a non profit organization that assists those struggling with poverty in rural Nicaragua. We are asking individuals to fill a Bearline with winter clothes for children and young adults! The fill the Bearline event will be outside Blair Shannon at 2 PM Wednesday, September 15th. At this event there will also be popcorn and more information on the Rainbow Network. We will then deliver the Bearline to the Rainbow Network and drop off the donated items. If you can’t make it to the event please email Elise Sommer at Elise006@live.missouristate.edu and drop off items with her, or drop off your items to the PSU front desk. Thank you so much and look forward to seeing you there!
The Office of Public Affairs Support is now accepting applications for the Public Affairs Grant Program. Applications are being requested for programs that will occur during the Spring 2011 semester. Deadline for applications is Friday, October 22, 2010. The Public Affairs Grant Program provides financial support to faculty, staff, and student organizations and groups to sponsor events for the campus community that are consistent with Missouri State University’s public affairs mission. These are events that provide opportunities for dialogue that encourage faculty, staff, and students to explore topics of public concern. Interdisciplinary and collaborative proposals are especially encouraged. The primary audience for these events is the campus community, but community participation with faculty, staff and students is welcome.
Application and proposal guidelines can be found at http://publicaffairs.missouristate.edu/grant/. For questions, contact Mary Ann Wood, Director of Public Affairs Support.
